This old airstrip in Bahr el Gazal province in South Sudan was originally used in the relief effort "Operation Lifeline Sudan" (OLS). It had become overgrown, but was cleared early in 2004 so flights could land there. The Buffalo (owned by Trident Enterprises) appeared out of a blue sky in the morning, picked up a few people, and flew off to Lokichoggio in Kenya.
