As per reliable source, it was a routine landing that ended up in hard landing leading to a tyre burst. It then skidded off the runway struck the wall. Glad that all crew members are safe.

Their c130 safety record is miserable. Earlier in 97 or 98, two were lost when a c130 with failed brakes hit another one parked on tarmac, both were writeoff with 5 dead. In another one in early 70s a C130 during full power gr run, jumped chocks and hit one parked in front, both destroyed. In addition three were lost in flying accidents, incl one of gen zia.

SEPTEMBER 10, 1998 - PAF Lockheed C-130B Hercules serial number 24143 and sistership serial number 23491 at PAF Base Chaklala (now PAF Base Nur Khan - Chaklala). One of these C-130s was taxiing towards parking bay but due to overheated brakes was unable to stop or became uncontrollable and struck stationary/parked sistership.
