Entebbe Airport

On the first leg of our journey we flew from Bloemfontein to Johannesburg and then straight to Entebbe pictured here. Entebbe is in Uganda and is best known for the Israeli Air Assault on it in the seventies when they rescued their nationals from a hijacked aircraft. Since we are an air assault unit I was interested to see this airport for myself. In that operation the Israelis only suffered one casualty.

We spent a full day here waiting to be flown over the border into the DRC.
