Our electrical engineer, Karel Moerman, brought a drone with him to Antarctica this year. We've taken aerial images of the station from an ultra light aircraft before, but this is the first time that an unmanned drone has flown over the station and shot footage.
From take off to landing, this video will take you on an aerial tour of the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica station, Utsteinen Ridge, the runway where planes take off and land, and the general vicinity of the station.
A fresh perspective
Even for those of us who are accustomed to seeing the station on a daily basis, this footage allowed us to see the station from a fresh perspective.
Thank you Karel!
