Douala - 2005
Just recently, July 2017, I have had a number of emails from families who lost people in the accident at Douala. It is gratifying to know they have found our webpages and have seen the refurbishment work we undertook.

One of the families had some photos of the Memorial as it was in 2005 and they kindly sent them in so we could see what is was like at that time. It can be seen that, sadly, the original plaques had gone by that time and it was more overgrown than when we found it, so there must have been some maintenance post 2005 by the local community.

These photos were taken by Pilot Nathan Gunnett, a friend of Graeme Dicks, who was at Douala in 2005 flying a charter.
