Here's Tuesday's flight:
|Blast-off from Yaounde|
|Great weather enroute on this leg (1.3 hours)-|
You can see Mount Cameroon rising in the distance.
|The pickup happened at an airport next to this large Del Monte|
Banana plantation- "TIKO" airport
|With the patient loaded in the Cessna 207, the clinic workers got out|
their cell phones to snap a couple shots with the aircraft.
|Next leg was to the mountainous and beautiful NW region of Cameroon.|
Our takeoff was at sea level, we cruised at 11,000 feet, and landed at 7,000 feet.
|We landed, taxied to the top of the sloped runway (12% upslope) then|
spun it around to prep for takeoff. This is looking NW'erly out of the end of
the horseshoe/bowl of the valley.
|Interesting sign at the end of the fenced in airstrip (on the inside). Apparently they don't want|
pilots jumping the fence and getting loose among the community!
(by the way- in NW Cameroon there is an English speaking region)
|On the way back to Yaounde, we buzzed by the national soccer stadium where|
the "indomitable Lions" play their games.
