Guys unloading were Croatian electricians. Flown out to rewind a cargo pump/generator combo which had disintegrated.They set up a "workshop" on the engine tops between the two mains and eventually rewound 3 of the gennys. Cannot remember the asst pursers name at that stage - this was my 2nd time on board and most ambitious landing by far - note distance between chopper rotor and top of hi jet system???
Worse was to come on pay off however as our flight home was hijacked before we got off (Mogadishu affair with Luthfansa jet) and we had to do an extra spell -cannot remember how long before eventually regaining the sane sanctum of anywhere else but on board.
However did another 2 trips? while she was on Pennington and that was even more of a scene of tall stories and unbelievable experiences.??

When I was in Nigeria last year she was being de-commissioned and returned to Nigerian National Petroleum Company. She was then heading to India for scrapping although from what I saw the off-signing local crew had removed just about everything.
