Gabon: Air Ambulance Cessna in Forced Landing

By Dr. Keir Thelander, serving in Gabon

As many of you know, a few months ago God provided an air ambulance service to the Gabonese people through Air Calvary. 

During the last few months they have been making flights between Bongolo Hospital (in Lebamba) and Gabon’s capital city, Libreville. As a result, many people have been spared the long, 10-hour drive between the two communities. Below is breaking news from Air Calvary’s pilot, Alliance pastor Steve Straw:

Air Calvary’s Cessna 207 aircraft, based in Gabon, Africa, experienced a loss in engine power and made a forced landing in the village of Owendo, just south of the city of Libreville. No one on the ground was injured; neither were the two pilots and one passenger who were participating in a training flight. Minor property damage was sustained, and the aircraft also incurred structural damage. A detailed report will follow.

What You Can Do

Please thank God that no one was injured in this unfortunate event!

Pray for all who were involved in this incident; pray also for the people assessing the damage and that repairs can be made as soon as possible.

Please pray that even through this difficult circumstance, God would be glorified.
