Chilling footage shows the shocking devastation on the ground after a plane crashed into a residential area of Pakistan this morning.

The Pakistan International Airlines jet was on its final approach to Karachi Airport when it went down near Model Colony and disappeared from radar.

It crashed around 4km from the airport. Houses have been completely destroyed, with images and video from the scene showing fallen cables and telephone lines as well as masses of debris in the street.
Thick clouds of black smoke can be seen rising from the destroyed buildings as locals watch on in horror. 107 people were on board the plane.

The crash occurred at a time when many airlines around the world have dramatically scaled back flights due to the coronavirus pandemic.
