Uganda Police takin care of teh traffic on Mityana-Kampala highway

It was tourism for Kiwawu residents on Mityana-Kampala highway when a small aircraft ran out of fuel making an emergency landing in the middle of the road. It had six US military personnel, two pilots on board traveling to South Sudan, but due to bad weather, the aircraft was forced to head back to Entebbe.

The pilot made the first attempt to land the light aircraft, but there was a bus and taxi coming from the opposite direction, so to avoid a scene, it was controlled upwards before eventually engaging the landing gear.

Fortunately, no one was hurt but traffic was disrupted for a greater part of the day. At the time of landing, the fast moving aircraft was hitting electrical wires that were sparking in the process. Other than that, all was well. Aviation police, fire brigade plus traffic police were able to get to the location just in time to avert further accidents plus control of traffic.

Hours later, a helicopter came to their rescue with additional fuel. Police helped the military personnel tow the plane to the side of the road. School going children spent and residents spent the whole day looking at the small aircraft that had chosen to use their road as a runway.
