There was a near Aircraft accident yesterday at Mongu Airport when the Zambia Air Force (ZAF) plane failed to land properly.

According to sources at the airport, the 221 AF ZAF Aircraft lost control when it just touched the ground and went off the run way and headed to the west.

The incidence caused panic among the staff and some residents in the nearby villages.

Meanwhile, Western Province Permanent Secretary (PS), Sibanze Simuchoba who confirmed the incidence to ZANIS today said failure by the plane to land properly was caused by bad weather conditions.

Mr. Sibanze said the incidence which happened around 08:00 hours had no casualties recorded.

The PS said the aircraft crew together with the staff at the airport managed to toll the plane back to the run way.

Mr. Sibanze also stated that the plane is in good condition and is ready to fly back to Lusaka later in the day.

  1. It is necessary to investigate the incident and not just rush to conclude that it was due to bad weather. Such cases can be caused by different issues including pilot error and misjudgement of the crew. It is good that there were no injuries or fatalities.

    • I am also wondering why the Permanent Secretary is the one issuing statements on such a situation instead of experts. Statements need to be coming from the ZAF.

  2. The pilot just wanted to be honored. This year they honored a pilot who was in near accident too.

    • And yet chibamba kanyama is being reprimanded for reporting the departure of an imf official. Who is the alarmist LT or chibamba?
