Boarding the Ilyushin-76!
We got the call this morning that weather at Patriot Hills is good and the ice runway is mostly clear. We have made a stop in Ushuaia, Argentina (which is the southernmost city in the world and capital of Tierra del Fuego region of Patagonia). We are picking up 18 Argentine scientists who will be spending 14 months in Antarctica. Bye for now, plane is taking off for "the ice"!!
