We finally got our cargo – the replacement wind direction sensor for Minna Bluff. We were waiting for it for a long time, which is not surprising considering C-17 never came to McMurdo and all operations are done by Hercs.
Today was our second attempt to do a helo flight. We were hoping for Linda and Minna Bluff in one day. However, the weather at Linda was bad, without a visual on a horizon (which is needed to land a helo).
We did stop at Minna Bluff (with our helo waiting on the ground) for a quick change of the part. Minna Bluff is fully operational now!
