There seems to be extensive damage to the airplane (landing gears in particular). It will be a mammoth effort to first bring the plane back to concrete ground and then do the repairs. Any preliminary guesses on the cause? If I am not mistaken this is a regular ATR flight to this destination.

Preliminary information suggests the aircraft was dispatched with the right hand brakes inoperative, the left hand brakes failed during landing causing the aircraft to overrun the end of the runway, while running over soft ground both left hand tyres blew.

Though MEL allows dispatch with one brake in-op with certain conditions (which obviously MUST have been met), yet in my organisation, dispatch with brake in op is a big NO. [-X [-X [-X

According to news sources:

* PIA ATR 72-500 registration AP-BKY has been moved to the runway at Panjgur Airport. The aircraft will depart for Karachi after necessary inspections/repairs.

* Longer runway could have prevented the incident.

* In the past, two incidents of aircraft overrunning runway have happened at Panjgur Airport.
