What was unusual about this flight was that it was full of Pakistani ex-pats flying home, all with excessive amounts of baggage many time overs their permitted allowance. I was also the only 'white man' on the plane and when we briefly landed at Karachi in Pakistan we were under strict instructions not to take any photographs as it was also used by the military!
