FAA Inspection Flight

Yesterday afternoon an FAA Challenger jet came over from McMurdo for a skiway inspection. They buzzed us a few times and didn’t actually land. This was the first aircraft we have seen since February and it created enough excitement to draw some of the Station dweller out in the open to watch it.

Heidi and Shaun handled the comms. This was also a good time to iron out a few problems with the radios.
