Great photographs again. Interesting to note the dilapidated state of the airport building in oil rich Nigeria!

Thanks Vaqar. You are right, its one of the richest in Africa but doesnt show anywhere. Same story as ours : corruption , corruption everywhere.

Very rare photos from Kano.

There are very few photos of this African airport on aviation photography websites.

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Abbas. You are right about the lack of pics available of African airports. In past couple of years I got the chance to fly almost whole Africa but was always cautious about taking the pics at most of the airfields.

Barring few, many African countries are fighting internal war and there is always an issue of rebels/warlords or who is in control of the airport. Also because of lack of infrastructure, majority of airfields are jointly operated by military and civil. Due to these they are REALLY sensitive about someone taking pictures there. As soon as you take the camera out, one can spot security guys or soldiers walking out from somewhere..I had my camera confiscated at N'djamena-Chad and was (luckily)returned after all the pictures were deleted.

Anyways here are few more from Khartoum and Lagos.

another nice set of photos and now i have concluded that it is B747-200 converted combi freighter operating for SV, really nice to see the pictures of such parts of the world from where we don't see much, thanks for sharing your great experience :)
