An Ethiopian Airlines plane strangely lost its way and recorded a strange landing at an unmanned airport as it is still under construction in Zambia, and this landing was the result of a mistake under investigation to find out its causes.
In a related development, a prominent government official revealed in a press statement hours ago that one of the Ethiopian cargo planes had accidentally landed on Sunday, April 4, 2021, and landed on one of the runways, an airport that had not been completed in the Copperbelt district in northern Zambia.
It is worth noting that the flights in the meantime are using the "Simon Mwansa Kapwepo" International Airport, which is located at a distance of only fifteen kilometers from the wrong landing site.
In this context, Mishik Longo, who holds the position of Secretary of the Ministry of Transport, announced that the pilot had landed at the new site to be opened in the future of Copperbelt International Airport "due to a mistake that is still under investigation."
For his part, Michik Longo explained that the pilot, when he was approaching the landing stage, was told by the radar control crew that they could not see the plane, and immediately the pilot used his eye vision to complete the landing and landed incorrectly at an airport under construction, according to Agence France-Presse.
