Last week we went exploring the Russian aircraft, a Lisunov Li-2T which crashed during take-off from Mawson in 1968 and has been stuck up on the plateau ever since. It’s in an interesting location – right in the middle of a crevasse field! To visit we need to take extra precautions of roping up together and wearing climbing equipment.

It’s an absolute incredible spot to visit and definitely a highlight of the summer.
