The Kodiak has landed!

Last Friday our family went out to the airstrip to watch the new Kodiak airplane arrive in PNG. It was exciting to be part of this great event. The Kodiak has many benefits over the planes we are currently using. It uses regular jet fuel, versue Aviation gasoline, which is getting hard to get, it can land easier on the shorter and rugged airstrips here in PNG, can hold more cargo to assist translators in getting to their remote locations, and will also be used in medical evacuations.
