Operation Deep Freeze The New Zealand Story
On the ice this week, November 2017! I’m in Antarctica. It’s fascinating – another great work story. Our Defence Force’s annual mission in support of Antarctica New Zealand’s work this year includes six Hercules and five Boeing flights, and the involvement of up to 220 people across the three locations of McMurdo Station, Scott Base and Harewood Terminal in Christchurch. Back on Friday.
