North Pole Travel and Global Warming, What it Means to You

( )  ( Model Airplanes )    ( Motorcycle Tours of Southern Europe )

We used this Antonov An-12, for transport from Katanga to Sredney Island deep in the Arctic Circle.  Our trip was fantastic.  This aircraft was much too heavy to land on the All Ice runway at camp Barneo which was made on the arctic ice near the north pole which was only six feet thick.   This plane carried a lot of cargo from Katanga to Sredney island then we took an Antonov An-26 to Barneo Base.  The North Pole Ski Team left first to get to the pole so they would have an extra day of skiing, the non ski group stayed in the Sredney Hilton for twelve hours waiting for the Antonov An-26 to return.  One thing that I noticed was that the aircraft were used constantly and the crews worked long hours on this expedition ferrying people and equipment to and from the base camp, Camp Barneo .   It didn't take long to realize that the Russian crews had more experience in Arctic operations than any one else.  This is why I was glad to use Global Expedition Adventures for our North Pole Adventures
