The Purple Shall Rule!

"My first flight was on a Russian made Air liner operated by Malev the Hungarian Airline. The year was 1957 or 1958, just after the Hungarian uprising. We were sent by our company in Sweden to finish some construction work at an Hungarian Paper Mill in Budapest. Somewhere over Germany one of the Engines starting to burn ( Propeller Engine ). The Pilot shut the engine down and we reached Budapest without any problems. However, being a first time flyer, needless to say, there was a considerable pleat in my seat when we landed." Per Allan

"For me, being from a very poor background, only having a privilege of riding donkeys, was an experience far beyond my dreams. I was on the flight from Maseru to Swaziland for my tertiary studies. Luckily I was sitting by the window, and I remember failing to hold my tears as I looked down bellow and see houses being reduced to tiny objects as we flew higher & higher! For a village boy who only saw planes fly by, and suddenly becoming a passenger in one, oh! It wasn't the smoothest of the flights as the weather was not so good, but believe me, I was saying even if anything could happen (the worst of course) I would be the happiest for I would be seeing my Lord in a plane! After all, I was nearer to Him already, up above the clouds. Lol!" Chabatsane

The bottom line: Passengers cruising to Mozambique need to have passports. Fortunately, no visas are required for citizens of SADC countries.
