We arrived around 3 pm Tuesday (5.5 hours flight) to a beautiful day, I watched a movie and took some pictures from the small window at the back of the plane. I was allowed into the cockpit to meet the US Crew and look out the front window, 4 guys flying the show and another excellent view. You don't realise how big the continent is until you can see it like that. Once we landed and taxied for a while we were able to get off, -25C wasn’t that bad due to wearing the full ECW clothing and the minimal breeze. Some friendly Kiwis picked us out from the crowd of 120 red coated Americans and we made our way to Scott Base in the Landcruisers (30 mins drive.).
It's great to be here and I will update further as I get settled in.
