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.
