This 1976 photograph, taken in an airfield in Yambuku, Zaire, showed the offloading of a Land Rover to be used by the Ebola team during the first outbreak. Del Conn, a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, and member of the Ebola investigation team, was feared to have caught the deadly virus during a survey effort in Yambuku, and was transported by this Land Rover to an airfield in Bumba, Zaire, in order to be evacuated to Johannesburg, South Africa.
