Name a light civil aircraft that once carried a frightened baby elephant, slashing a four hour dusty journey by vehicle to 45 minutes by air. (This feat was documented, happened prior to 1973).

1a. Aircraft Make?, 1b. Model? in generic terms suffices.

2. Game Preserve name?

This true quiz may be my oddest/weirdest yet.

I have not found this particular incident yet, but I am finding a lot of information on the tranquilizer dosage for air transport of large mammals. I'm guessing that part one is going to be a Cessna 172, similar to the 2013 incident in Chad/Cameroon.

A baby elephant's gestation period is almost 22 months and at birth weighs about 200 pounds and is 3 feet tall. Picture that. Probably a tough squeeze for a C-172. Perhaps little or no anesthesia or tranquilizer was used for the short flight in question as the baby elephant was described as frightened. Maybe recommending blinders over the elephant's eyes?

Please keep trying.
