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.

  5. After exploring a number of the blog articles on your web page, I seriously appreciate your technique of blogging.
    I saved it to my bookmark site list and will be
    checking back in the near future. Please check out my web site as well and tell me what you think.

  6. You know, all these profiling strieos remind me of Criminal Minds, where the team always has a profile reday within the first 20 minutes of each episode and every profile is always magically correct: so they sayYou’re lokking for a white male between his early thirties and mid forties, highly organized, with creme scenes showing clear scenes of sexual sadism: he craves power and is therefore likely to have a job with a lot of authority and prestige. This is an intelligent sociopath, so he will have married a woman to fit in and appear normal to you but because he cannot tolerate the idea of someone being more succesful than him in his own house, he will forbid his wife from working or only allow her to take menial jobsAnd by the end of the episode, voile0: the guy wa a 41 years old white dude owning a company with 40 employees while his wife was cashier at Wallmart and who was indeed a domestic tyrant: beware the power of the almighty psychologistNow I can’t help but imagine Harris giving a profile:You’re looking for a middle-eastern brown skinned man between his late teens and late fifties: he’s had a muslim religious education, not christian or jewish or buddhist or whatever: just muslim, and he might have been known in the community for his left-wing activism and pro-political-correctness declarations. He also have a deep seated hatred of America and every person representing its authority: he might hide it, but if you spend enough time calling him a baby rapist he’ll snap at you thus proving that he hates you and your country. Also, the people fitting the profile may not have taken part in any terrorist activity yet but they will start next week or next year, so keep them inside.

  7. I appreciate the opportunity to have read this and I will reflect upon it and I’ll check back in the future, to look at what other people are saying about the matter.
