1st Flight to Bongolo!!!

Loaded and ready!

Passing Lamberene.


Incredible... truly amazing. God is so good. 1 hour and 50 minutes... unbelievable to so quickly travel to a place that takes 10 hours to drive to.

At the start of the day, I had a lot of leg work to hunt down the final document that I needed for the flight. The challenge was that my cell phone was nearly out of battery power because we left the airplane partially packed up from yesterday's attempt to fly- that was where my charger was. So, I had to hunt down that document (2 hours), then, while filing my flight plan, I was again asked for an additional document. Can you believe it!?! Incredible. They said that I needed a document stating the airplane was inspected and in good shape for African flying. Well... I had the reciept from the 2 guys that did my aircraft inspection a week or so ago, so I flashed that and told him that it is all good.

There's so much happening very quickly... I'm going to do some flying in the area of the airport today to verify the topography for mapping out a GPS arrival to the airport.



  1. Wooooo!!! We are so happy for you. Love the pictures, and the one with the boys acting so cool in the back cracks me right up.
