Remark Photographer
9Q-CCW (cn 263) 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.

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.

Wow, looks crazy low. Nice shot. Maybe I need to go there :D 5*

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!

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 6, 2007:
That is crazy. Best picture I've seen on this website. Excellent shot

A visitor from Canada posted Fri January 5, 2007:
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!
