Spent a number of weeks in Lae during the last stint. The flying was completely different to Tokua particularly with the sheer amount of flying and the pretty high altitudes involved. All good fun really.
Flying into Lae
Climbing up to return to Lae over the mountains. Around 6000ft AMSL there.
Landed at Derim.
Sometimes you just have to land where you can. Logging camp at Oroport.
The bigger the aircraft, the more gear they get you to carry.
Taking the coffin into Wyabu.
Picking up a patient at Wau.
Emo Mission, the same Emo Mission that ORBX created.
Parked at Popondetta Hospital waiting for fuel.
Crossing a ridge at 12000ft... and the ridge is right there. Big country.
Taking coffee makers, of all things, into Yalumet Station.
Cargo hauling PNG style..
Flying polio patients
First time a helicopter has landed at Qoqo. Taking another coffin.
MEDEVAC at Kor. Went in for one patient and her infant... came out with a full helicopter. Seven people, infants and mums.. mostly on the floor.
