Apparently what is written in the e-mail i got but not confirmed.
The load master released two pallets in the front upper deck when other pallets at the back of the flight has not been offloaded.
The cargo was carrying New Ghana Cedi coins currency from Canada.
Those are heavy, wonder why they didnt send them via sea. Knowing africa last minute orders

The plane was apparently undamaged because it was in MIA just a few days after these pictures.
