I've been into Goma in a Cessna 310, one of those twins with pointy tip tanks. It was hard case as the local village boys seem to have a competition going.
The first boy to lay a hand on the aircraft during the landing is the winner. A little disconcerting when you see about 10 kids lined up on the side of the strip. They must judge it to be about the 30Kt point and start their run-up from there.
Many of the guys were carrying firearms or machetes, I guess we should have been thankful the younger ones were in athlete mode.
