The aircraft is a Beechcraft 1900.

At least one Karachi-bound flight diverted to Nawabshah due to blocked main runway, according to news sources.

The aircraft is indeed AP-BII.

PIA Engineering is taking part in operation to remove the aircraft from main Runway 07R/25L. Aircraft smaller than Boeing 777 using secondary Runway 07L/25R.

The aircraft was performing flight from Karachi to Sui with 16 passengers and two crew members, according to some news channels.

I wonder if the Main Runway has re-opened as AP-BMG operating flight PK7536 from Jeddah is currently approaching Karachi. Kaarachi Airport website also showing confirmed arrival time of 1330 local.

An official from Pakistan CAA told PTV News:

The aircraft is in repairable condition and will be repaired.

Main runway was opened at 1:30 PM after removal of the aircraft from accident site.

According to PTV News, the aircraft was departing from Karachi for flight to Sukkur.

BTW, the aircraft involved in this incident i.e. AP-BII was built in 1993 and acquired by ASSL in late 2008/early 2009.

The aircraft experienced problem with an engine after takeoff and soon after the second engine also experienced some problem with fuel supply.

Indeed this could have been a catastrophic event.
What I fail to understand why a landing was attempted after aircraf was airborne ?? Shouldn't have he circled around ,ensured safe measures for landing and then attempted one , aircraft does fly on single engine you know....that's why there are procedures
