I can confirm that Bryony and the team are flying out any moment to Antarctica. The ALE flight originally set to fly out at 8pm (local time) was brought forward to 2pm due to increasing winds at the Union Glacier Base preventing later landings.
Such measures insure that the flight should arrive at the base by Midnight tonight (GMT). We will hopefully give you confirmation of a safe landing in the morning, and some news and pictures from Bryony and the team from the coldest continent on Earth!(Left) Taken as the team are gearing up ready to head to the Airport to fly out. (Right) The aircraft bryony’s and other teams will be travelling in.
