Sunshine everywhere, Finally the weather is great – everywhere! At Union, At Messner, at Berkner, at the South Pole – and at the Axel Heiberg Glacier! So why no flying out??? Well, one plane is stuck 800km away at Berkner Island and one Twin has to fly spares out there for repair. And as it is the long range Bassler that was hurt (and not the Twin as we said yesterday) it means it is ruled out of flying our team to the Ross Ice Shelf. That means 2 Twin Otters for our lot. But the fuel depots were not geared for that, so the second Twin has to do fuel flights today to ready everything for tomorrow. So, tomorrow it will be! We have no reason to believe otherwise… or do we????
