This year, the arrival to the Argentine station on King George Island was very smooth. The Chilean Hercules left at 8:20 on September 25. after arriving on the Fieldes Peninsula, King George Island, I just waited about an hour at the landing strip for the weather to clear up so that the helicopter could take of.

It was an amazing flight over the frozen cove in front of the Russian and the Chilean bases, Bellingshausen and Frei. The welcome in Carlini was really warm. The freight was send to KGI with a Brazilian flight and didn't arrive the same day but was brought two days later with a Twin to the glacier.
