SA Airport Security Not So Bad.....

Wed Nov 10, 2004 2:41 am

compared to this....

My wife gave me a printout of two photographs taken from the flightdeck of a plane taxiing past a parked Hewa Bora Airways 727 and another airliner (looks like a BAC 1-11), white with I.T.A.B. on the side. The apron is swarming with people and they are STEALING FUEL from under the wing of the 727! The 727 tailstair is down and the left front door is open with no stairs at it so who knows what else is going on with the plane.

In one of the pictures there is a guy in a green reflective jacket standing watching as several guys hold containers up to the fuel flowing from the wing.

I can't read the airport name on the building, it says "aeroport de...." it's a yellow double storey building with billboards on the roof.

Anyone know where this might be?
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
