Subject: Reported In Propwash

The reason I submitted this is that it showed up in Propwash, a
staid Aviation Newsletter read by tens of thousands of pilots of
all persuasions.

I found it odd that it even made it in there. the incident
itself is tragic.

For what it's worth.

Pakistani Officials Say Fuel Tank Explosion Caused Bhoja
Airlines Accident

Some News Report Indicated That Unidentified Lights May Have
Been Present

Officials in Pakistan are saying that the April 20th accident
involving a Bhoja Airlines Boeing 737 was caused by the
airliner's fuel tanks catching fire and exploding while on
approach to Islamabad Airport, but some news reports have added
a layer of mystery to the accident which fatally injured all 127
people on board the airplane.

The pilot made a mayday call moments before the disaster, and
reported that a fuel tank had caught fire and the plane was out
of control. Authorities said the jet had been properly
positioned at the beginning of the approach but then descended
suddenly to 200 feet while flying at 300mph. It then descended
another 50 feet before its tanks exploded. Given the violent
thunderstorm raging in the vicinity, some experts have
speculated that wind shear may have been a factor in the jet's
inability to hold altitude.

But the Daily Mail of India cites a Russian news report which
shows footage of three mysterious lights moving in formation.
That has led to speculation in the UFO community that an
extraterrestrial may have been involved. The news report
suggests the pilot could have been distracted by the object, and
even complained to the control tower at Islamabad Airport as he
made his approach.

A judicial investigation into the accident has been ordered, and
the head of Bhoja Air has been restricted from leaving the
country. Interior Minister Rehman Malik said, "It is being said
that the aircraft was quite old, so it has been ordered to
investigate thoroughly the air worthiness of the Bhoja Air
aircraft. 'The causes will be investigated, whether it was any
fault in the aircraft, it was lightning, the bad weather or any
other factor that caused the loss of precious lives," he added.
The plane's flight data recording systems, key to any
investigation, have been recovered.
