ISLAMABAD, July 28 (Xinhua) -- Local media quoted experts as saying that the black box of the plane that crashed in the Margalla hills in the northeast part of the Pakistani capital Islamabad Wednesday morning will be sent to the United States for decoding if it was found. They also said that it will take two to three months before the report can come out.
Earlier Wednesday, at about 10:00 am (local time), an airbus 320 carrying 152 people aboard crashed minutes before it was supposed to land at the Islamabad airport, killing all the people aboard reportedly including at least 20 women and seven children as well as two Amierians and a Somalian.
The Islamabad-bound plane took off at the Karachi airport at about 9:43 am Wednesday. The plane with the flight number ED-202 was on its way from Turkey to the Pakistani capital Islamabad via Karachi. The crashed plane belonged to a local private airliner named Airblue.
The plane which was manufactured in 2000 was rented by the Pakistani airliner in 2006, reported local media.
