MOON REGAN TRANSANTARCTIC EXPEDITION

TERRIBLE WEATHER DELAYS DEPARTURE

The first passenger flight to the Union Glacier Blue-Ice Runway (SCGC) has still not yet left Punta Arenas because of the weather conditions in Antarctica. An unusually large amount of snow has fallen at the start of this summer season in the region, more than has been seen since for several years. Until the runway is clear the Illyushin cannot land. ALE informs us that they have never had so many delayed flights in all the years they have been operating out of Antarctica.

The team is desperate to get on the ice but unfortunately nature holds all the cards, a timely reminder to everyone before the start of the Expedition. The longer the wait the more it becomes obvious quite how unique a place Antarctica is. Unfortunately, it only makes it more frustrating for the expedition members, who, after years of planning, cannot wait to get started.
