The Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe yesterday impounded a chartered MD11 trijet cargo plane owned by Western Global Airlines stashed with millions of South African rands and a dead body after it asked to land in Harare during a flight from Germany to South Africa.

During routine refuelling airport staff noticed blood dripping from the plane, the dead body found, and the alert given. Investigations were still in progress last night.

Western Global Airlines is based in southwest Florida in the United States of America. The plane was flying from Germany to South Africa when the captain asked for a technical landing at the Harare International Airport after an initial request to land in Mozambique was turned down.

Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe general manager Mr David Chaota confirmed the incident last night. “Yes, it is a Western Global Airlines plane and now the case is being handled by our security ” he said.

South African Ambassador to Zimbabwe Mr Vusi Mavimbela confirmed the incident last night but would not give details. “I spent the better of the day at the airport,” he said. “I am aware of what you are saying but I cannot comment now because there are investigations that are still going on.”

A Western Global MD11 in Harare on Feb 14th 2016 and the results of the fuel stop

On Feb 15th 2016 news coverages hit the global headlines from Zimbabwe stating, that a Western Global Airlines MD-11 enroute from Germany to South Africa performed an emergency landing in Harare (Zimbabwe) after being denied landing in Maputo (Mozambique). While refueling the refueler noticed blood dripping from the aircraft and called police. Police discovered huge amount of money, South African Rands, and the body of a dead male. All six crew were arrested.

The Aviation Herald met this story with disbelief. Blood dripping off the aircraft after so many hours of flight? This detail alone shot the story down at an instant.

However, background research now revealed following facts:

On Feb 13th 2016 a Western Global Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-11, registration N545JN performing flight AJK-4425 from Entebbe (Uganda) to Liege (Belgium), performed a seemingly uneventful flight and landed safely in Liege.

The aircraft subsequently positioned to Munich (Germany) still as flight AJK-4425 the same day.

A planespotter took a photograph of the aircraft in Munich which showed blood stains at the right hand side of the fuselage.

Ground staff at Munich Airport noticed the blood stains as well and reported the blood stain. The blood stains were identified as result of a bird strike however and no further action was taken.

In Munich the aircraft received its cargo destined for Durban (South Africa), a load of bank notes printed in Europe for the Reserve Bank of South Africa, and in the evening of Feb 13th 2016 departed as flight AJK-4130 with the intermediate destination Harare (Zimbabwe) for a planned fuel stop arriving in Harare on Feb 14th 2016.

During refueling the refueler discovered the blood stains on the panel, reportedly an air conditioning panel, at the right hand side of the fuselage and called police. A stowaway was subsequently recovered from the aircraft.

The aircraft, crew and the circumstances of the death of the stowaway are still under investigation by police in Zimbabwe.

The airline confirmed that their aircraft was leased to Network Airline Management. The shipment picked up in Munich was destined for South African Reserve Bank. The aircraft operates to Africa for Network Airline Management several times a week on a regular basis with Western Global providing aircraft and crew and Network Airline Management providing security, ground handling and cargo. The airline wrote: "During a routine fuel stop in Zimbabwe, a body was found in the lower compartment. The body is presumed to be a stowaway who may have entered the airplane during a previous stop. The situation is currently under review."

South African Reserve Bank stated: "The bulk of the annual production of banknotes is done locally in South Africa and a small percentage is done offshore as part of the contingency plans of the SARB. The aircraft currently detained at Harare Airport is carrying a consignment of South African banknotes that was produced overseas as part of the SARB's annual production plan."

WTF?!

Não é contrabando, o artigo refere que o Banco Central da África do Sul produz, como regra do seu próprio plano de contingência, ZAR (Rand Sul Africano) no estrangeiro, neste caso na Alemanha. Esse dinheiro é depois transportado via aérea para Durban. O sangue terá sido de um clandestino que muito provavelmente entrou no avião em Entebbe - Uganda, origem do voo anterior a este.

Eu também entendi justamente isto, que o clandestino havia entrado, possivelmente, na etapa anterior.

 

Mas aí me gerou a dúvida: não houve inspeção pós/pré voo? Ninguém que estava dando apoio no solo reparou na quantidade de sangue que havia na fuselagem antes da decolagem da Alemanha?

Estranho porque normalmente um membro da tripulação faz um crosscheck na aeronave indo inclusive no bulk para verificar se não há algum material não informado na load já que tem uma capacidade consideravel de carga .

Sim, NOS-767, eu havia lido, porém, pela foto e no meu julgamento, a quantidade de sangue é muito maior do que aquela resultante de um bird strike. Nas duas vezes que eu colidi com ave, ambas as vezes foram urubus, a quantidade de sangue que restou na fuselagem foi muito menor do que a mancha que aparenta no pouso em Munich.

 

Mas, como eu disse, meu julgamento.

Autopsia confirmou que não havia ferimento externos e internos no corpo encontrado na aeronave e que a causa da morte foi hipóxia. Não encontraram nada suspeito sobre a tripulação e carga a bordo e consequentemente os liberaram para prosseguir o voo.
