PK 451 first pushed back for its departure around 9 am but returned back from runway due hydraullic malfunction. Engineering cleared it around 12 but then midway it again developed some problem with its hydraullics. Upon touchdown the pilots failed to bring the aircraft to a stop due brakes failure.
Now all the flights from and to Islamabad are delayed till 9 pm and the latest notam also says that runway 30/12 are closed till 9 pm.
Lets hope that they clear the runway soon.

Ali shabbar's msg. He was the first officer of that flt.
Pakistan International airlines aircraft veered off the runway at Islamabad Airport.

From a viable source:

As it was climbing out of Islamabad's runway 30 the crew stopped the climb at FL150 reporting a hydraulic failure and decided to return to Islamabad.
The aircraft entered a hold while the crew worked the checklists and burned fuel, the aircraft subsequently positioned for a landing on runway 30, touched down safely at 13:35L but veered right off the runway and came to a stop with all gear on soft ground.
There were no injuries, the aircraft however received foreign object damage to one of the engines (CFM56).

I think a team from Airbus is due to come and do a structural inspection and evaluation on the plane which is why its still there. The recovery team did their job now they wait for the Airbus team to come and check it out.
