After the Republic of the Congo (Leopoldville; since 1965 Kinshasa) gained independence in 1960, the Belgian national airline Sabena continued to operate routes in the country. Plans for the formation of a Congolese airline were delayed due to the Congo Crisis. However, in January 1961 a protocol was signed with Sabena for the creation of a limited liability company to be named Air Congo. On 1961 the company was formed, and incorporated on 28 June with Sabena providing technical assistance and personnel. The initial fleet of Air Congo consisted of ex-Sabena Douglas DC-3s, DC-4s and DC-6s. The first international destinations served by the carrier were Entebbe, Luanda, Nairobi and Ndola. The last "short" DC-6 was disposed of in 1970. You will require Jens B. Kristensen's FSX Douglas DC6 (DC6_V20X.ZIP). Original textures by Jens B. Kristensen. Repaint by Maarten Brouwer.
