Antonov 74 Flying to Barneo Ice Station

The team has been delayed by about three days. the coming days are hard work as they have to get used to minus 30 degrees Celcius. Get used to the new environment. And, tomorrow they will have a fly over from the Icebridge plane of NASA. This plane will fly over the 2dgrees team and measure from the air the snow Ice thickness. Bernice and her team will do measurements at the ground at the same time at the same coordinate.
The plane will fly over on Wednesday and Friday.

If all goes according to plan (And during an expedition it never does…) the team will arrive at the North Pole on April 24. We’ll see.
