Migration - Back to the Ice

I'm heading south yet again for another season in Antarctica.  This will be season six and my fifth working as a loadmaster, they call us HeloTechs, on the helicopters flying out of McMurdo Station.

Sunrise as we leave green Christchurch New Zealand.

This year we're flying on the Australian Antarctic Program's Airbus instead of the C-17 cargo plane.

It is a luxury to have windows!  Here we're making landfall on the Antarctic continent.

On the ground on the ice runway.   That's frozen ocean we're standing on!

Onto the big-wheeled people mover and into town and home for the next 18 weeks...
