BBC World just gave a breaking news flash saying that there are ambulances and fire trucks on the runway at Harare International Airport.
They say it’s possible a flight from Britain may have crashed or developed problems on the runway, and to stay tuned. WTF!
Also Naomi Campbell is lying. “I didn’t flirt with Charles Taylor … I’d never heard of Liberia … I don’t know who gave me dirty-looking pebbles”.
HARARE, Aug 5 (Reuters) – Zimbabwean Civil Aviation authorities said on Thursday an aircraft was involved in an accident at Harare airport leading to injuries but no deaths. Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe Chief Executive David Chawota could give no further details. “I can confirm there has been an accident, but I cannot give details right now.

HARARE/LONDON, Aug 5 (Reuters) – A Zimbabwean aviation official said on Thursday an accident reported at Harare airport was an exercise and no aircraft were involved in any incident. “There was a drill. We have to test our preparedness, and response capabilities every now and then,” said the senior official of the Civil Aviation Authority, who declined to be identified. Zimbabwean authorities will be holding a news briefing later on Thursday. Britain’s Foreign Office also said the incident was a drill. “As we understand it, it’s a drill, it isn’t real, it hasn’t really happened,” a British Foreign Office spokeswoman said. Civil Aviation authorities earlier reported there had been an accident at the airport leading to injuries but no deaths, and media reports said the flight involved had originated in London. A Reuters witness said the situation at the airport was normal with people waiting for flights arriving and departing.
