A few days ago, my friend @anon36731834 and I adventured From Christchurch, New Zealand down to McMurdo station, Antarctica. I’ve heard stories of how often the New Zealand Air Force flies this route, especially during this time of year. I decided to try the expedition for myself in infinite flight using the C-17. Enjoy some of the photos I’ve captured during the flight!
Flight Time: 5 hours
Route: NZCH - NZIR
Parked at the Antarctic aprons witnessing the New Zealand sunrise
Taxiing with the main terminal in the background
Refueling over the Southern Ocean
@anon36731834 mildly bored but still flying along…
Parked and unloading all our cargo.
Although the flight was almost entirely over the ocean, it was still a fun and enjoyable flight. Thanks for reading, and have a great rest of your day!
