After the excitement yesterday it was right back to operations. Skier 90 came to NEEM with 30 passengers – 22 as day visitors. The Skier left for Thule while we spent 4 hours touring our guests in the main dome, the drill and science trenches and the shallow drill site. The guests included a Summit group, 109th press group and NEEM guests.

The skier came back with fuel from Thule and after defueling and loading of 3 pallets and 45 passengers the very heavy skier managed to take off in the third attempt. Well done!
