This is why flying in Congo has so much attraction to pilots: right after take off from Shabunda (FZMW), the pilot banks the empty CASA to the right, to make a low pass over the river nearby.

Ah... the reason, in a jpeg-nutshell, that I became a commercial pilot. That kind of flying is sooooo much fun (so long as it's done properly!) - there's just nothing better than flying low and seeing the sights! Kudos for a great photo - if you have the opportunity to get more, PLEASE DO!

Fantastic shot. was in similar situation in an MAF flight out of the amazon jungle in venezuela. had to skim the padamo river to gain speed before we could maintain a positive rate of climb. flying at its best!

Great action shot. But I know from hard, personal experience that there are cables across those rivers in Congo, where you least expect it, and I think putting up hotdogging pics like this will just encourage someone to go out and kill himself, in Congo or otherwise.
