In 1959, Remy Van Lierden, as full Colonel, commanded the air base at Kamina in the Belgian Congo. In the Katanga region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, returning from a mission by helicopter, he claimed to have saw a Giant Congo Snake emerging from a hole as he flew over the forests. He described the snake as being close to 50 feet in length, with a 2 foot wide head and 3 foot long jaws, earning its place among the largest snakes ever reported.
Colonel Remy Van Lierden described the snake as having a dark green and brown top and a white or light coloured underside.
Upon the discovery, he then turned around and made several passes over the snake at a lower altitude in order to allow another person on board to photograph the creature. However, they left after the snake appeared to be in a striking position. It's believed to be a Titanoboa or maybe even a new species.
