MCM back to CHC...

Before I lose track, now that I'm back in CHC and have net access again, here are some photos from the Antarctica to CHC return...



Ivan-inside
Monday morning, we went to MCC and boarded Ivan the Terra Bus and a Kress... no getting bumped this time. Here's a view inside Ivan, headed to Scott Base to pick up returning Kiwis who were travelling with us. There was a tense ten minutes when Ivan's brakes locked up on a downhill slope, blocking the road... but it was fixed and we continued on to the Pegasus ice runway (named for a crashed plane).

C17-MCM
We exited our warm vehicles to make way for the incoming arrivals... then stood outside in a holding area for 45 minutes, in zero F (-20F windchill) while waiting for cargo to be unloaded and reloaded on the C-17.

C17-enroute
Once boarded, there were some actual seats in the center section. But no windows... here's an interior view, during the five hour flight.

Stardocs
A couple of people were medical evacuees back to CHC, there was an Air Force medical corpsman attending them... here's his bag. ;-)
