Dale Andersen's Field Reports: October 2019


After a very easy, uneventful flight south on the IL-76, we made it to the ice runway at Novolazarevskaya Tuesday afternoon.

We depart Cape Town in the IL-76 for Antarctica at 0900 local. We should be in Antarctica 6 hours later. Cheers, Dale

On Wednesday I hit the road and start making my way to Antarctica via Cape Town, South Africa. My team and I will arrive in Cape Town on Thursday, and weather and aircraft permitting, we will depart for the ice runway at Novolazarevskaya in Queen Maud Land on Tuesday the 29th.
