Today was heli fly off for essential Davis personnel, so those like myself not involved spent most of today bunkered in with the bridge and external decks closed. So a rather uneventful day for myself and no opportunity to get off the ship unfortunately. Wandering around Davis might have to wait till V3.

Tomorrow morning Mawson flight #1 is a go, with those personnel going straight from the ship to the plane which we can see not too far away on the sea ice skiway.

I’m flight #2, so it’s still undetermined if we’re a definite at this stage, if we will get a quick chance to see the Davis living quarters “flight lounge” on route, or if we too will go from ship to plane direct. All will be revealed tomorrow…
