Photos taken in Johannesburg airport during the delayed (nearly 24 hours) flight back to Perth. No criticism of Australian Airline Qantas whatsoever is intended - it all was handled quite OK, we simply went back to the airport bar..., but I was pretty bored all day afterwards. One can probably imagine...
Puzzled mechanics (at least they looked like that to me) are looking on the 747's front wheel after the aborted take-off.

Waiting for the passport control back to Jo'burg (took about 3 hours)...
Bored... watching other planes take off...
Finally..! Please note for how long the flight was delayed...
