Now over 60 years later, MAF has a fleet of some fifty planes flying in Africa and another eighty in the rest of the world.These aircraft are based in many strategic places in Africa and Asia, and can now reach most inaccessible places bringing vital help to vulnerable people.

The book traces the history and development of MAF and contains many photographs of life in Africa at a time when there were few runways or the kind of back-up we are used to today. It truly was a pioneering work, bringing both the gospel and humanitarian relief to many remote regions.
