PIA A310 radome should also appear black like Air France A300.

According to DAWN News channel, a parliamentary committee meeting today expressed unhappiness over the usage of PIA aircraft i.e. AP-BEQ in shooting of a movie about Operation Entebbe. Members of the committee sought action against individuals involved in it.

PIA officials told the committee that the airline earned 210,000 euros by renting out the Airbus A310.

ISLAMABAD: Senate’s special committee on PIA sought a detailed report along with all documents containing approvals and correspondence of the tender process of the PIA’s obsolete A310 aircraft.

It also sought details as to who approved sending the aircraft on rent to Malta
for exhibition and permitting its use in a film shoot which might have political and religious implications.
