Default HiFly complete first A340 Antartica landing

Quote:
Hi Fly has made history once again, by landing, for the first time ever, an Airbus A340 in Antarctica.

Captain Carlos Mirpuri and his crew flew the widebody aircraft, from Cape Town to the White Continent and back; the journey is 2,500 nautical miles, flying for just over five hours each way. Never before has an A340 landed on an Antarctic blue glacial ice runway. The aircraft will be used this season to fly a small number of tourists, alongside scientists and essential cargo to the White Continent.

Thanks for posting - the antarctic footage is stunning, and the corporate fluff, as expected
