    Flew into Maun before it was Maun. Just a pile of empty fuel drums and wheel tracks in the grass. Except for the afternoon thunderstorms and high density altitudes Botswana is not very challenging. Back then getting lost was the big one but no longer, thanks to GPS.
    For challenging flying I suspect Indonesia is much more interesting. Your vids certainly make it seem so!

      Thanks Andrew. GPS has certainly made flying a lot easier these days. Trying to locate a flatland airstrip cut into the jungle here would require some spot on DR navigation. If you were even a few hundred meters off track, you’d never see it!
