Picture courtesy of my wife Eleanor Rix. Destined to be the last Caravelle in scheduled passenger service (with Gabon Express) this aircraft was new when leased to Air Congo in Oct 1968. As 3D-KIK, operating a Transair cargo charter from Kinshasa (FIH), it crashed at Gisenyi (GYI) in Aug 2004 after diverting from Goma (GOM). An East African Airways DC-3 is parked alongside.

The clouds seem perfect. The mountains in the background and just the sunny color.
