Bloody Plane Requests to Refuel and Ground Handlers Stunned by Cargo

Ground handlers at Harare International Airport were shocked when they noticed blood dripping from a plane with Western Global Airlines when its pilot requested permission to land and refuel.

The plane was flying from German to South Africa. Inside, they found a body and millions of South African rand. The Western Global Airlines plane--based out of Estero, Florida--was impounded in Harare on Sunday.

David Chawota, general manager of the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe said, "The case is now in the hands of the state. It involves nationals and property of other countries ... but yes we impounded the plane on Sunday. The crew requested to land for refuelling but our ground-handling personnel discovered blood leaks and became suspicious."

According to the state-run Herald newspaper, the crew included two Americans, a South African and a Pakistani.
