Antarctica: Final summer season ice flight

The New Zealand Defence Force’s summer-season support to our country’s commitment to the pristine Antarctic region has drawn to a close with the final Royal New Zealand Air Force Boeing 757 ice flight. Around 200 Defence Force personnel directly supported the mission at various stages of the October to March season, with the mission peaking in February during the annual supply ship offload where Defence personnel worked round the clock in freezing conditions. courtesy NZ Defence force.
