Congo Operations

Congo Operations

Transair was asked by the United Nations to assist with air transportation in Congo. In 1960 two Super Curtiss aircraft, SE-CFC and SE-CFE with crews and technical staff, were chartered by the UN. Later the company was also asked to supply a DC 6 to the operations.

Since then, and until the UN operations in Congo terminated, TSA had equipment and personnel stationed in Congo and had operated with as many as six Super Curtiss, two DC 6 and a staff of 50 based in Leopoldville.

Operations continued until late 1963 when the UN handed over management to the Congolese authorities but TSA was asked to place staff and aircraft in Congo at their disposal.

A separate table with info about all TSA aircraft serving in Congo will soon be available.

Below you will find pictures from the Congo Operations, including comments and descriptions. The pictures have arrived from Captain Hans Hanes who served with Transair in Congo.

Further down on the page you will find pictures from Rolf "Mellis" Mellström.
