A KLM cargo plane lost a part of one of its wings above Zimbabwe on Monday. The wing flap came loose as the Boeing 747-400ERF was approaching the Robert Mugabe Airport in the capital of Harare, a KLM spokesperson confirmed to NH Nieuws. As far as is known, no one was hurt. 

The plane, operated for KLM Cargo by subsidiary Martinair, was on its way from Johannesburg to Harare, according to Luchtvaartnieuws. The flap fell off above Chitungwiza, some 30 kilometers southeast of Harare and near the airport.
