After the ALCI meeting Monday afternoon, the team is now locked in Cape Town until Thursday evening. This is due to bad weather conditions at Novo station. This gives us the necessary time to prepare the logistic and field deployment plan for the season. This year, there are a lot of people in our D3 flight (more than 65) as well as 12 000 kgs of cargo. For Princess Elisabeth Antarctica, ALCI planned three feeder flights from Novo on the 22-23rd November. We hope that all will run smoothly.
