47 DEAD AS TWO BUSES COLLIDE IN ZIMBABWE
HARARE, ZIMBABWE: Forty-seven people were killed in Zimbabwe Wednesday when two buses collided on a road between the capital Harare and the eastern town of Rusape, police told AFP. "We confirm 47 people have died in a road traffic accident at the 166-kilometre peg along the Harare-Mutare highway," police spokesman Paul Nyathi said. On Twitter, the state-run Herald newspaper said pictures from the scene were too graphic to post. The paper said the morgue at the local public hospital in Rusape had run out of space and sought help from a private funeral parlour to take in some of the corpses. Traffic accidents are common in Zimbabwe, where roads are riddled with potholes due to years of underfunding and neglect, but the highway where the accident occurred had been recently resurfaced.

Ten members of American Airlines #AA728 crew were taken to hospital after emergency landing in Boston due to burning smell in cabin
Ten members of the American Airlines crew were taken to hospital after the jet made an unplanned landing at Boston’s Logan Airport on Sunday night. The busy plane had set off earlier off from Philadelphia bound for London Heathrow. Reports in the US say the concerned cockpit crew deployed their own oxygen masks during the “medical emergency.” The pilot reportedly advised ground crews in Boston “declaring a medical emergency, we have sick passengers, sick flight attendants… We have three pilots up front, we’re all A-OK.” American Airlines said after the incident: “Flight 728 from Philadelphia to London Heathrow diverted to Boston after a possible odour was reported in the cabin.

Was this the busiest day in aviation history? Flight tracking app registers over 225,000 aircraft in the skies on Wednesday
Wednesday may have been one of the busiest days in aviation history.
Flight tracking app Flightradar24 said it registered over 225,000 aircraft in the skies on that day - the most it had ever recorded in a single day.
The figure is made up of every flight the app managed to trace and includes commercial flights, cargo planes, helicopters, gliders and private jets. However, Flightradar24 has only been tracking flights since 2006 and isn't the official supplier of air traffic data, so whether Wednesday was a record-breaker is open to debate. To illustrate just how busy the skies were on Wednesday, Flightradar24 released a snapshot of its world map graphic from that day, which was swarming with plane icons.
The majority of the flights were clustered over the United States, Europe and South East Asia. Source
