5 tonnes!!!. "However it was Nigeria so nobody cared".
The crazy world of Nigeria!!, always hated going down there! But at the threat of tread creep, there are other ways of losing a few tonnes Jet A in Nigeria, which is why it is wise not to fill up when you leave the plane parked up for a few days!! The locals love it
