The Twin Otter has left the South Pole, making their way back the same way they came down. The rough part is over and I hope the rest of the mission goes as good. I just want to give my friend and everyone else involved down at the South Pole a big HI FIVE and a pat on the shoulder for doing such a great job. I know my friend put in a lot of hours getting the runway ready, and suffered through the cold to get these people out.

Thanks for the updates my friend. You really made this thread awesome. And personal. I never guessed when I started this thread we actually had somebody on ice.

I wonder how much todays technology helped over the tech available on the last rescue mission in I think 2001. They still had to fly down 2 planes from Canada.

Hopefully they have landed safely by now.... I wonder how much they got paid to fly this mission???

But again thank you for the updates and Thank your friend for the pic and all his work. I bet they delivered some fresh food.

Enjoy your time down there and don't complain about the cold, right???

Looking forward to your thread about daily life down there.

Congrats to the Calgary pilots and everyone else involved for making this crazy medical emergency recovery mission to and from the Antarctic a success !

Now let's hope the two workers make a healthy recovery for whatever their medical situations are all about.

I'm risking this from an iPad while my hubby is frowning...

Did anyone see the Suspicious Observers broadcast for this morning? Towards the end, it shows an odd formation and I thought of this thread. I hope he is able to follow up on it.

And the preview says my link is wrong...sigh...but someone here mighty know what I'm talking about. It is most odd.
