So, thanks to the hard work of the guys at the Lebamba airstrip (Bongolo Hospital airstrip), our airplane can get to the hangar! A nice, new, larger culvert will now help in solving the erosion problem we were having across the runway. A special thanks to Dr. Thompson for directing this project!
|Here's where we have been parking for the last year or so- right on the grass strip.|
|Now, with our new culvert in place, we can get to the ramp area and then...|
|... into the hangar! To the right is our project foreman, Andre'.|
|The aircraft fits snugly- only a foot and a half clearance on either side.|
|And now, thanks to an enhancement from our Bongolo team member, Paul D., we can have some water and give our aircraft a much needed bath!|
|As you can see, the airplane had become nice and dirty. "Lavez-moi"- I suppose most of you can figure out what that means!?!|
|My aircraft washing partner is Fidele. He has flown with me previously and was very happy to help me shine up the aircraft.|
