Maybe this should be part of the “succuesful bush pilot” post…. I flew up to Dukana Christmas eve to get a med-evac patient to take to Wamba.  The flight was easy…except for -finding- the silly runway at Dukana!  There are actually two runways there. One is just north of town right by the police post…and is unusable due to significant bushes and trees growing up in the middle of it.  Easy to see though.  The usable one is about 2 miles southeast of town, near a road junction, but it is totally blended into the surrounding area.  It took me three tries to find it and what I saw first was the windsock pole.  There’s no sock, just the pole.  Once I found that I was able to spot the outline of the runway.

The flight went smoothly, and the staff at Wamba was waiting for me when we arrived and they took the patient right in.

Now I just have to get a decent picture of the place into the directory so that the next guy who goes there doesn’t spend a half hour trying to find the place.
