The last frontier: the journey continues

Recommended Posts

We are back in Cambridge Bay, but now we have March, which means much longer hours of day light. Our destination Ulukhaktok Holman airport further west at the Pacific coast is some 280 nm away, if we would fly direct. But first we have to deliver some urgently needed supplies to Kugluktuk, before we can set course for our final destination.

 

Let’s check out the plane

Hmmmh….and what is this? Are these your manuals? But the photo of the Ju-52 I like though

And what is this idiot doing there so close to my plane???? Doesn’t he see or hear, that the engines are running?

I see that you fellas are still studying your manuals. Ok, but let me tell you one thing: that bottle of Bordeaux Grand Cru over there next to the bunk bed, that will be mine for tonight

Yap, we sure could need a bit of paint here and there. But no worries, under the skin the old girl is still in her prime

We have reached our first port of call Kugluktuk. Unfortunately the runway is damaged, a big bird like us is presently not allowed to land there

So we’ll drop our goods from the air.

And on we go

Should one ever decide to drop out of this crazy world and look for a quiet spot, where one can practice the art of inner peace, don’t look any further, this sure is the place for it
