Encountered big towering thunderstorms today. Bumpy ride.


At last another airport with habitation around it.



Made a sort of post card of the airport by zooming the spot plane camera way out. My plane is just the tiny little speck parked near the corner of the building in the center.

Rain forest, I think.


Just a large empty flat area surrounded by a bunch of trees that you can't see.

 94th leg: Thursday, July 21, 2005
FOON to FZEA, Franceville, Gabon to Mbandaka, Congo

Started in the afternoon this time. Wasn't much to see because of clouds.


Uh oh. The sun's going down. Miscalculated daylight again.


 

But plenty of lights in Mbandaka. Crossed back to summer on this leg.
