Aboard C-17 jet. 110 people fly to McMurdo Antarctic station from Christchurch, New Zealand. After 5 hours flight we turned back due to bad weather at the landing site www.gigapan.org/gigapans/17976/ . We made so called boomerang and spent next 5 hours heading north to Christchurch.

    nathantw, We were lucky to fly C-17 jet. Some people experienced the boomerang flight on Hercules C-130 www.gigapan.org/gigapans/19393/ It takes 8-9 hours one way from Christchurch, NZ to the Ross Island where the McMurdo station is located.

    Wow, 10 hours of traveling and you still didn't get to your destination. That's crazy.
