Here Come the Baslers

At 11 o' clock this morning a station-wide call goes out saying that Baslers will be arriving in a half hour. Here's our air control room.

Everyone preps for the arrival.

Folks gather to take pictures and meet the new faces.

First we heard de plane then we saw it's shine as it's wings glistened in the sunlight. The first visitors in 8 months.

The Baslers were only making a 20 minute stop to refuel. They originated in Canada, flew to Chile, then to Rothera Station and stopped here. Their next destination is McMurdo where they will pick up some summer crew and fly them back here... if all goes to plan.

No freshies :(
