When the Congo emergency developed, the British Missionary Aviation Fellowship was quick to send help in the form of Cessna 180 N9540B, which operated from Leopoldville. This aircraft has now had to return to its base at Malakal in the Sudan, where it has once again been fitted with floats and is bringing relief to communities isolated by floods.
Help was still needed in the Congo, however, and the new Cessna 180C (shown here) was sent out from the U.S.A., but until recently, when the Congolese President intervened, it was held up by the Customs. Registered 90-CMR, it is now working from Leopoldville; originally it was to have had the registration OO-CMR
