Pamir Airways (Kabul) has lost its Antonov An-24B YA-PIS (msn 27307903) today in a remote part of Afghanistan. The aircraft was carrying 44 passengers and crew, including six foreigners, in a mountainous northern region with poor weather.

Rescuers were on their way to the crash site near the 12,700-foot high Salang Pass, a major route through the Hindu Kush mountains that connects the capital to the north. The plane, on a flight from the northern city of Kunduz, went down about 60 miles from Kabul.

Hilecopters and Natos are searching for the plane, still nothing found within in limitted area. It says the Plane is crashed down near 30km to Kabul. then why nobody can found it! The residents of the area (Hindukush and Salang) that the plane carrying Kabul Bank Money and there were some foreigners they also said that the plane is hijacked!
