Flat Tyre. Just after I boarded the plane this afternoon the crew asked us to disembark. ‘A minor issue identified by our engineer’ they said, ‘it’ll be fixed in 30 minutes’. We duly stepped off the plane, took a few photos of the offending ‘slow puncture’ and waited for the tyre to be replaced. An hour later the plane was ready to go and I am happy to say I am safely arrived at my destination in Kinshasa!
