ISLAMABAD: Society of Air Safety Investigators (SASI) Pakistan, on Wednesday,  expressed serious concern over the ongoing investigation into the Bhoja Air crash. SASI CEO Naseem Ahmed addressing a press conference objected to the Boeing team’s visit on the grounds that there was no technical investigator from Pakistan who had enough experience to match theirs. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has just one aircraft accident investigator. “The situation appears grim as there are serious indicators of poor flight safety performance by CAA,” said Ahmed who served as an air crash investigator with the authority.
