Antarctic Sightseeing Flight
Sunday the 12 February 2012 I went on a flight with QANTAS with Croydon Travel.
I met up with Paddy & Ann Butterworth & David Dodd it was Good to catch up with them.
It was a full Flight & I thought we were going have trouble viewing Antarctica especially when we had cloud cover until Cape Adare.
Well I was wrong & after taking more then 300 photos It did turn out a great trip.
The weather cleared to give us a fantastic view. As we travel south through the Victory Mountains we had a good view of Mt Minto one of the tallest in Antarctica.
The Pilot was turning the Aircraft so both side of the Aircraft had a good view & this continue further down toward Mariner Glacier, then heading West see more Glaciers & Mountain peaks for 1 & half hour? Then climb to 5000+ metre Heading toward Dumont D’urville Via Mertz Glacier & Mawson Hut.
There’s more the Captain went through the South Magnetic Pole & did few turns to see what the compass does, some of passenger got to there compass out to find it was not working properly.
Over all I think it was great flight & made few friends, & Monday night I down load 20 DVD, as I promised to people I met I will make a copy of some of my Antarctic Photos.
I also told few of the passenger to check our web site but when check the stat. tonight it show it is the lowest in days 🙁
I enjoyed sharing few story with other passenger & I hope they check our web in the future 🙂
