IN SHORT: Renegade Air has successfully launched a new route in Kenya but false claims around that achievement have also flown on social media. Its first flight to Homa Bay county did not land on a dusty airstrip.
The airline will be connecting travellers from the capital Nairobi to the county and back.
But does it show the runway in Homa Bay county? We checked.
Video is old
The caption to the video says it shows a Douglas DC-6 plane on a makeshift landing strip in Pretoria, South Africa.
The caption also gives a link to another website which published more photos of the plane and details of the flight.
Renegade Air’s first flight from Nairobi to Homa Bay was recorded in a video posted by the company on Facebook. The airstrip and the type of plane in this video is different from the one seen in the claim.
The video circulating of a dusty airstrip does not show a Renegade Air flight or aeroplane.
