The last mission in this flight period

Tuesday 28th of June 2016

Skier 21 overflying the camp on the way back.



Skier 21 arrived at 10:00 am to a perfect sunny day with a good wind down the skiway.

The mission went really fast with four pallets, fuel and five people arriving and three pallets and fourteen people departing. The skier took off using only half the skiway.

We are sixteen in camp and are looking forward to the next three weeks we will spend together before the next flight period.

What we have done today:
1.    Received Skier 21 with 5 people arriving and 14 departing
2.    Resampled snow surface profile in the clean snow area
3.    Unpacked pallets
4.    Worked on floor in drill trench
5.    Started the Japanize snow sampling project


Weather today: Sunny all day. Temperature -16 °C last night increasing to -6 °C in the afternoon Wind 5-13 kt from SW.

FL, Dorthe Dahl-Jensen
