From time to time we have some aspiring aviators stop by the hangar for a visit. Here is a story from Rob, our chief pilot:
Yesterday (12/22), a container of supplies from the US arrived in Bongolo. In addition to many medical supplies and equipment, I received a number of needed parts and equipment for the airplane as well as 16 drums of aviation fuel. When I took the boxes to the hangar, Jantir who maintains the runway, was cutting the grass. Two of his children were also with him. As I unpacked one box, I found two little teddy bears that my parents had squeezed in the corners - one blue and one pink - just in time for Christmas!
