Maktau Residents Get a Rare Plane Showcase Treat


Residents of Maktau in Taita Taveta were on Saturday treated to a rare plane showcase event  as the county marked 101 years since the first powered plane flew in East and Central Africa. 


The first plane flew on August 8, 1915, when a British-assembled aircraft took off in Maktau;Taita Taveta County.

The battlefields have since then been marked as tourism hotsports.
