Flying from Rothera to Halley

This film shows a few of the folk I shall be working with at Halley as they describe waiting for our transfer flight. The Basler (DC3) which was made in 1944 arrives a bit late but then we jump on it and head across to Halley to begin a build season there.

While at Halley I will be unable to produce blogs about the build that is going on as BAS will own the copyright to all my footage plus they may wish to make use of the footage in the future. I shall produce the odd blog about normal yearly things that happen at Halley, especially when I get down to the Emperor penguins for a weekend etc. I also have a small back log of blogs to make from Rothera so if the time allows in the evening I shall put something together.

Enjoy, Have fun Kirk

  1. so amazing Kirk… so much peace in the white colour…( lovely music by the way)

    • Thanks Silvia, and your right there it is very peaceful out on the white vastness. Although we’ve had a blizzard most of the week so not as peaceful but once its calm again it will be. Hope all goes well in Gran Canaria. Eoghain sounds like he’s doing well with his business. I shall have to give him a shout soon.

      have fun
