Ben Saunders and Tarka L'Herpiniere fly from Punta Arenas, Chile to the Antarctic Peninsula, on a modified DC3 prop-plane. Watch this short video for an insight into their journey....
Right now, Ben Saunders and Tarka L'Herpiniere are on arguably the most ambitious polar journey in history - an 1800 mile unsupported return journey from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back retracing Captain Scott's footsteps.
The Scott Expedition will be the longest unsupported polar journey in history and first completion of Captain Scott's ill-fated 1910-12 Terra Nova expedition.

3:33 - 3:43 - King George island, off the tip of the northernmost penninsula of Antarctica. They basically arrived at the warmest part of Antarctica, and in the summer of the southern hemisphere, since it was light out. And, it was still below freezing, -9 celcius (16 farenheit). I don't think anywhere in Antarctica ever rises above freezing, does it?

El despegue y el aterrizaje no lo grabaron. Era lo mejor ver ese DC3 despegando lo que más me gusta.!! ¿Qué pasó..!?

You know what's funny? I was just thinking about how wonderful the DC-3 was and still is. I had the idea that "One day, maybe I can buy one and fly it to Antarctica because I've al;ways wanted to." So I typed in "flying to Antarctica" here on BRvid... Yeah, I was right.. lol.

Too bad there isn't an upgrade option that keeps them EMP resistant..

Yep. Not even economy on airlines ever fly to Antarctica. No commercial aircrafts fly there because there are no airports or control towers. And for the same reason plus with it being dark, no planes of any kind fly to Antarctica in the southern hemisphere winter months. And the fuel in the aircraft may freeze even midflight because of temperatures getting to almost 100 below zero.

You should say turboprop makes a big difference
Did you lose internet below 60 degrees?

Basler does a amazing job on the old DC 3's.It's funny but this is probably the most sophisticated complex yet simple airplane there is.They take the old rugged reliable DC-3's and bring them into the 20th century.Considering the DC-3's have made it past 70 years in service I see no reason they wont make it to a hundred years of rugged service and this Basler conversion exemplifies the old saying that the only real replacement for a DC 3 is another DC-3 lol.

Is the cabin pressurised?
SouthJerseySound 3 anos atrás
Yeah no pressurization on a DC 3 but that's about all that Basler doesnt do to them in their upgrade/rebuild process.

Thanks for the update. I wish you health, strength, endurance and luck, a lot of it. In such a hostile environment as you will be trawling through, luck is something good to have plenty of. I hope for the best, and cross my fingers. (I´v newer seen a comet list this empty after 5 days. I´m comet 3! I simply can´t belief it. Something is going wrong with humanity...)
