Day 6 – Dakar, Senegal to Monrovia, Liberia

Day 6 and we depart Dakar, Senegal (GOOY) with a first leg of 3 hrs over Gambia and into Guinea (GUCY) for a fuel stop. Lots of jungle canopy and a few small villages but not much else. The 2nd leg has us flying over Sierra Leone on our way to Monrovia, Liberia. Thankfully no planned stops in Sierra Leone. The civil war may be over but none of us feel the need to visit. At last we arrive in Monrovia (GLRB) for the night. A long day of 5 flight hrs but now time for a little maintenance and put the machine to bed. Then time for paperwork and the all important “crew beer” at The Hendeja Resort. A beautiful beachside resort. Looking forward to a good night’s sleep before we make our way to Ghana tomorrow.
