Leaving to Antarctic

Leaving at 23.35 tonight on board the LCI Russian Ilyushin 76 plane. The flight is 6 hours and from the pictures it looks quite comfy for a converted cargo plane with no windows. But we do get a
movie! On board will be 55 passengers from India, Japan, China, Norwegian, Swedish Antarctic stations in addition to the 5 of us from FINNARP.

We will tell how it actually was after we arrive at the Russian Novo blue ice rinway and then take our basler flight to the Finnish Aboa station, hopefully in the next day or two.
