Today at 11:56 am, the 1st plane of the winter landed here at McMurdo. The last flight out was Feb 28th so its been roughly 6 months without much change. Today 16 "winterovers" left and 120 new people came in. This is pretty insane!!!
this is the plane out, 18 miles out of town on the ice runway.
a very welcome site!!!
lots of new red parkas in town and it didnt take but 10 minutes before Tad was spotted messing with peoples jackets. Either changing out the name tag, moving them or whatever....the new people better watch out for us toasty old winterovers.
