South Africa grounds all Air Zimbabwe planes – no landing or take off, Zim set to hit back

Air Zimbabwe’s B767 aircraft, flight UM462 was the first Zimbabwean plane to be grounded. You can view the reason below:


South African civil aviation says Air Zimbabwe does not have a “foreign operators permit”. President Robert Mugabe landed at Waterkloof military airbase in South Africa on Wednesday in the same B767 that was grounded yesterday by South Africa’s civil aviation. It is not clear at this time if this Air Zimbabwe ban will affect President Robert Mugabe’s UM1 which is technically a charter operated by Air Zimbabwe.
