AIR ZIMBABWE IS DODGING THE REPO MAN:

Zimbabwe’s troubled state airline has cancelled flights to London, fearing seizure of its aircraft over unpaid debt.

Air Zimbabwe board chairman Mike Bhima said a European air safety agency won a court order empowering it to impound the airline’s aircraft over an outstanding $2.8m debt.

‘As a security measure, our lawyers have advised us to suspend flights pending discussions,’ he said.

Sadly, this is no real surprise. (Via Rantburg).
