There many controversial stories about the Airline and Plane. It is said it was 27 years old plane. There were no proper maintenance of the Airplane .

M. Farouk Omar Bhoja is the owner of airline and retains 5% shares, whereas controlling 40% shares are held by M. Arshad Jalil and 15% shares are held by various others. 

The aircraft was more than 27 years old. It is unknown at this point whether the age of the aircraft may have contributed to the crash. The owner of the aircraft, Bhoja Air, had suspended operations until recently due to financial problems. Pakistani officials have promised a full investigation and Farooq Bhoja, the owner of Bhoja Air, has been put on the exit control list, meaning he may not leave the country while the criminal investigation is underway.

A very beautiful poem dedicated to Air Crash Victims

ٹکڑے ٹکڑے عمروں کی مسکان پڑی تھی
جان بدن سے دور کہیں انجان پڑی تھی
کسی کی آنکھوں میں پتھرائی حیرانی تھی
کہیں کہیں کوئی آنکھ بہت سنسان پڑی تھی
ایک طرف اک پرس پڑا تھا گڑیا کا
ایک طرف اک گڈے کی بنیان پڑی تھی
پتی پتی پھول ہوا میں بکھر گئے تھے
اور زمیں پہ جھلسی ہوئی پہچان پڑی تھی
کس چوڑی میں کس کے ہاتھوں کا ریشم تھا
کس جوتے میں کن پیروں کی شان پڑی تھی
کوئی جگر تھا، کوئی کلیجہ اپنی ماں کا
کس تابوت میں جانے کس کی جان پڑی تھی
(فاضل جمیلی)
