Aerial Operation On Today – Wednesday

Aerial Operation On Today – Wednesday 29 October 2003

The delayed aerial operation against gypsy moth will get under way today at 9am this morning (Wednesday 29 October).

Today’s operation was delayed due to poor weather early in the morning and so did not get underway on time.

The operation will start at the hospital end of the treatment zone and travel north. Weather permitting the operation should take half the morning to complete.

Today (Wednesday) being a school day means the aircraft will be out of the air between 12.15-1.00pm and then again if necessary between 3.00-4.00pm – the times most children eat their lunch and travel home from school.

The public can call the 24 hour free phone 0800 96 96 96 for updates and general information about the programme. People can also listen to Newstalk ZB (1296 AM or 97 FM), Classic Hits (98.6 FM) or ZM 89.8 (89.8 FM) for updates.
