In 2007 Steve Chart was appointed as consultant to the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) with the task of assisting in the reduction of baggage pilferage at OR Tambo International Airport. What Steve soon realised, however, was that in terms of security, the airport wasn’t a vessel with a small leakage problem, but a boat on the absolute verge of sinking. He encountered countless cases of corruption and poor management, and no desire to take responsibility.

This book details the many interesting and at times humorous investigations he undertook at the airport and deals extensively with the baggage handling system, and is a reminder to the public about protecting their luggage, themselves and their fellow travellers.
