The C182 in PNG : the third leg of the day

Recommended Posts

The story goes on. Here I am in Woitape, ready to go, to fly to Tapini, a rather "interesting" approach again  (I mean if you don't mind a little scare  :wink:!)

Impressive bush flying. Makes you wonder who decided the actual location of some of these airstrips, and what were they flying? :)

Thanks

 

It seems that almost any highlands village has its own strip !  

 

They fly DH6 Twin Otter, C206, Pilatus Porter, that kind of planes. The A2A C182 is not out of place, a robust and powerful aircraft.

 

What make flying there interesting is, of course, the terrain but also the climate, hot and humid.

 

The Worst Place To Be A Pilot YouTube videos. are quite impressive.
