Congo Bush Pilots
Market Road Films for National Geographic Television
The Democratic Republic of Congo is an African nation the size of Western Europe. 30 years of war, famine and governmental corruption have crippled a struggling infrastructure. 75% of the country is inaccessible by road, creating a situation of utter dependence on bush pilots-- flyers with the courage and skill to land planes on some of the world’s most challenging terrain. This is their story.
