    i also believe there have been some attrition losses-remember during the embargo, to keep the fleet operating atleast 1 or 2 a/c were stripped for spares.

All on board were killed, including the US ambassador to Pakistan, a US general and 17 top ranking Pakistan Army personnel. Two of the scheduled passengers who did not board the aircraft later reached the highest rank in Pakistan Army, chiefly because most of their seniors died in this incident. One of them was General Pervez Musharraf, president of Pakistan from 2001 to 2008. Although many people do not consider this an accident, neither Pakistan nor the US government properly investigated the incident and made the findings public. Some researchers claim that there was a bomb hidden in the mango crates which were loaded on the plane without proper clearance. Eyewitnesses claim that the aircraft exploded in the air. Such claims were declared false by the government and the remains of the aircraft were swiftly disposed of.[52]

    Thanks Sir, that I am aware of, but before this incident another had happened in which 2 general rank officers were killed, i believe it was the 15th July 1966 incident, and after this incident it was banned that no 2 generals would fly in one aircraft for security reasons. I remember it to be a C-130 crash.
