#questkodiak landing Arizona | 1200 ft. bush strip, patches of soft sand so not much braking action, beta is a huge advantage on strips like this. A slight 1% grade uphill. Huge thanks to the @flyraf for keeping these strips open for us to use. .

Me - Bush Pilot, Tanzania 🇹🇿 2002. Yep that’s me 2nd right in the white shirt. I spent about 6 months in Tanzania bush flying in the lovely Piper Seneca 5H-MNF
.
I flew people to safari camps way out in the bush, can you believe that ground with the vegetation on is actually the runway? Had to keep your wits about you as just out of shot is the wreck of a Cessna 404 who’s pilot didn’t manage to stop in time on the short runway. .
Loved flying past Mt Kilimanjaro, over Ngorongoro Crater and out over the Indian Ocean to Zanzibar😎
.
I had so many adventures and have daring tales to tell about snake attacks, engine fires, medivac flights and much more besides.

Flying out of the #selousgamereserve to go on holiday... Isn't it ironic?

What a way to rap up a day - don’t mind knocking off late if it means I get to do a sunset flight over the Pound

When peeps ask me what the people of the Papuan mountains are like, it's a bit hard to explain - but here's my attempt
.
These people were pretty much in the dark ages in the early 1900s and now out of nowhere they have been thrown into the 21st century
.
The older men and women in the village still wear the traditional dress but all of the younger generation are wearing western clothes
.
The children are all learning Indonesian and their parents know little or known
.
There used to be many songs for the ancestors that now only the older generation know but with the introduction of Christianity, these songs have been phased out
.
These villagers are super strong though but tiny - if you look at the guy in this photo compared to the landing gear of the caravan - you can get an idea

I totally forgot about this story but I was at dinner with my parents last night and I was reminded of it
.
I was taking passengers from this airstrip, I may or may not have forgotten the name of it 🙈 - it may be Prongoli
.
This lady is handing me all her baggage and then there's one box that she hands me gently and tells me, "Hati Hati" - be careful
.
So I asked her why and she said, "Ikan Tidur" - fish sleeping. I couldn't help but laugh

It still blows my mind how remote these people are
.
I have been reading up about the people that live in Papua and PNG and how they were migrants from the Indonesian Archipelago (I had to look up what that meant - group of islands)
.
Apparently they settled on the shores of the beaches of these islands but my question was, how the hell did they end up in the middle of nowhere in the mountains with nothing else around?
.
One of the theories was that initially the people were settled on the shoreline and as there were internal tribal conflicts - people moved away from the village
. 
Over the years this kept happening causing people to move more and more inland. Aaaaand that's how you get a runway on the top of a mountain at 7000ft with nothing else around 😂 or like Sefoidi here - next to a river

A little village I have spent about 3 months of shuttling fuel in and out of this village, so these guys can make a road and get rid of the silly pilot that has to bring them fuel all the time 😂
.
I do also take in cement, 50kg/110 pound bags, into this village. These villagers walk 2.5km with these bags on their shoulders to their village down near the river. I struggle to carry it 6m from the plane.
.
Big respect to these people! Thanks to @diontano

So you know when you do a nice smooth #landing and there's noone to see it, buuuuut when you plonk it down, you have a massive crowd watching.
.
When I landed at this #airstrip (Bilai) I had a massive crowd watching. I didn't think much of it and presumed they were just there to spectate and admire my sick piloting skills (they are sick, but not the cool type of sick 😂).
.
After landing and shutting down, hordes of people gathered around the aircarft, I thought they were all there to congratulate me on my super smooth landing (I wish it was smooth)
.
I untied the load and that's when the frenzy started. There were fully grown men pushing old ladies to the ground and little kids grabbing older men's ball sacks. .
Apparently in this village, it's a "get what you can" policy and whatever you get, you get to eat. Survival of the fittest for sure!

I may need to get a #GoPro, leaving my phone resting against the window is slightly shakey. Anyone tried out 360 cameras like the #goprofusion for #flying? I used the music to distract your mind from the shakeyness 😂

Let's fly away ... I was 19 at this time and took the C182 to Ayres Rock in the middle of Australia for a 10 day safari. Key takeaway- it's HOT out there! .
