I was on my way once again to Kipaka with 900 pounds of medical supplies for the hospital, cruising along at 10,500 feet when all of a sudden I heard a strange humming noise. Hmmm....all the engine instruments are normal, but the sound seems to be getting louder and louder. I go so far as to even take my helmet off, and then I see it, not 50 feet above me. I'm dumbstruck with utter disbelief as the ugliest twin engine airplane I've ever seen flies directly overhead. After a moment of gaining my composure, my next thought is to get a few incriminating photos, but it's too late for that. I guess even deep in the jungle you have to watch out for other airplanes.
