Walikale's "Runway" In The Congo Is A Road Running Through The Middle Of Town

Landing on "Runway 12" in Walikale means landing on a road with a centerline painted down the middle. And with trees 5 feet away from the wingtips of this Cessna Caravan, a 30 degree turning road, and two rusted out plane wrecks (from unsuccessful attempts here), this landing isn't for the faint of heart. Check it out, then pass it on.
