Zimbabwe's Harare airport holds air crash drill - forgets to tell anyone
At a press conference to discuss the "crash", the airport operator admitted that it was actually just a drill, and that telling the media the accident was real was all part of their brilliant plan.
I'm really confused about this one - I can understand wanting your drill to appear as real as possible, but to tell the international press that a flight has indeed crashed may be taking things a little too far.
Still, I guess it is always a good thing for an airport to practice their safety procedures, and in the end, nobody died during this event.
