Good to hear that all are safe. From pictures I saw, rightwing tip is on ground and right prop damaged. Will be a big ask to repair it given its remote location i.e gilgit.
Most probably will be third ATR write-off for PIA, not a very good statistics.
Given the size of airline industry, and no of major accidents and hull losses, I think Pakistan should rank amongst worst in the world.

Is it not the regulatory authority (CAA), or accident investigation body ( SIB) who have to organise and conduct an investigation. How come CEO of the operator 'order' such investigation?????
