Is pic no.3 at Kigali?
Looks like it.
Sorry for only answering now Whethefakawe, our internet connection on Gough island is a bit dodgy.
No that picture was actually taken in Bunia when we did demining on the outside perimeter of the airport.
My first words from the welcoming party was: 'welcome to hell' but it turned out to be rather nice and interesting!
Did not know about the incident at Bukavu but can only imagine as there is little to no room for error.
I have unfortunately never been to Goma although we had demining ops there. I know about the Vulcan and lava covered runway though, and if I recall correct even some planes were trapped in. Apparently quite a nice part of the DRC and a famous 'Goma cheese' factory there.
