FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found it to be FAKE.

Firstly, the ill-fated flight which crashed in Karachi was the Airbus A-320 but the one in the video is ATR 42-500.

We extracted keyframes of the video and put them through Reverse Image Search which led us to the extended version of the same video.

The video posted on YouTube on December 10, 2016, shows the simulation of PIA ATR 42-500 crash.

Hence, the above information proves that the video in question has no connection with the recent PIA flight PK-8303 crash in Karachi, Pakistan, which claimed 97 lives.
