My analysis of the daring attack on Peshawar International airport. With 178 passengers and crew members onboard, flight PK756 en route from Riyadh came under heavy fire while still 300 feet (100 m) above the ground. Initial reports suggest 6-8 bullets hitting the plane, one of which narrowly missed the captain of the flight.
