Fast jet plane fails to land at Joshua Nkomo airport because there was no electricity

A FASTJET plane was forced to make a u-turn to Harare after failing to land at the Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport Hin Bulawayo due to power cuts on Wednesday morning.

There was no backup generator available at the airport for the plane to make a safe landing forcing it to return back to Harare.

Fastjet FN 8441’s failure to land is the latest case of disrupted flights attributed to obsolete airport equipment.

Last month, some flights from Harare and South Africa to the Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport were cancelled for three consecutive days after airport navigation equipment broke down.
