In 1956, a 1948 Piper Family Cruiser carried five young men deep into the Amazon headwaters. Despite having a gun with them, they were speared three times each and left in the water. The story was made into a 2005 movie, "The End of the Spear." It was good to see the BBC capturing this memory just this week in a feature interview with Jim Elliot's daughter.

The BBC's story came right as I am nearing a winter project that is to resemble this famous plane. I hope to get to tell its story whenever people ask. In the meantime, enjoy the insights.
