Co-Pilot to Fossil Bluff

Today I was lucky enough to be the co-pilot for a flight to Fossil Bluff. Fossil Bluff is a deep field refuelling depot situated approximately 225 miles South of Rothera on the Antarctic Peninsula.

I was flying with Al Howland, a very experienced polar pilot. Once we were in the air he handed me the controls…the visibility was nil so I spent the majority of the flight staring at the instruments which was very disorientating!
