Hi and welcome back to another collection of photos from my flights! This journey is quite a special one: a summer charter flight to Antarctica. Every year, planes booked by tour groups fly adventurous tourists to Teniente R. Marsh Airport in the northern tip of the continent. These flights are only operated during the summer months. The landing itself is very special since the 1300m runway is unpaved. As a result, this episode features the descent and landing into Antarctica. I used a Dash 8 Q400 to fly from Argentina to Antarctica. Enjoy!
Time: 1h 47min
Route: SAWH - SCRM
In Ushuaia. Just look at the beautiful mountains behind!
Taking off on Runway 07…
V2. Positive Rate. Gear Up.
Climbing out of Ushuaia. Look at the breathtaking scenery!
There was just ocean, ocean, ocean during the cruise so I jumped right to the amazing descent to Antarctica.
Final turn Runway 29…
Zero visibility approach without ILS. Scary!
Glad that I made it. Decelerating on the dirt/gravel runway.
Welcome to Antarctica!
I hope you liked it! Thanks for reading!
