I’m going to drop a clue on this one: I have landed and taken off from this airport, but you’d have to know me really really well to be able to figure it out on that basis.

  1. Entebbe, Uganda, Entebbe international airport. Lat: 2′38″ N Long: 32· 25′ 27″ E

  2. Correct. I flew in and out of Entebbe in 1988 due to a refueling stop on a flight from NE Zaire to Nairobi on a 10-seater Beechcraft (or something). It was very rough flying out of Zaire, and I was at the back. It was one of the most uncomfortable flights of my life, so my relief at arriving at Entebbe was enormous.

    At Entebbe, we had time to walk around the airport, which seemed vacant. The bullet holes from the Israeli commando raid of years before were still in evidence on the outside of the building, and the terminal itself seemed empty.

    It was a much smoother flight the rest of the way.

  3. Am a Ugandan in the UK and i would like to say that the description of the entebbe airport is all wrong. You need to realise that there are two airports used in Uganda and one is commercial while the other is a military base, and for commercial plane, they will land at the new airport which to my knowledge has not bullet holes or any baring to the famous Entebbe raid by Israel even after the war that ended in 1985. So whoever is making this comments better get their facts right.

  4. Seo, do not forget that Brad’s comment above is 6 years old and written before the new airport was constructed I do believe.
