LAHORE: A Lahore-bound aircraft of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) escaped accident on Tuesday. 

The PIA flight PK-258, coming from Sharjah to Lahore, struck a bird while landing at the Allama Iqbal International Airport. Following the accident, the pilot safely landed the plane having 168 passengers though one engine of the plane was damaged.

During the last two weeks, four incidents of this sort have taken place. Meanwhile, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has advised pilots to take precautionary measures to avoid collision with birds, especially during take-off and landing.

To control the flock of birds at the Lahore airport, more shooters have been deployed. According to the CAA, the number of birds around airports usually increases in the monsoon season.
