Air Rhodesia Flight 825, a scheduled passenger flight, was shot down by the Zimbabwe People's Revolutionary Army (ZIPRA) on 3 September 1978, during the Rhodesian Bush War. Of the 52 passengers and four crew, 38 died in the crash. ZIPRA guerrillas then rounded up 10 survivors and shot them. Three passengers survived by hiding in the bush, while a further five lived because they had gone to look for water.
