Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 2006-07: VUWAE 51
Field deployment to Mt Erebus Saddle was carried out with HNO. Despite difficult weather conditions, the deployment and pickup of cargo and passengers was very professional, efficient, and safe. A total of eight loads were deployed to the site including six sling loads, which were pre-packed under supervision of the flight crew, R.McPhail and R.Fletcher, prior to the scheduled flight day. All sling loads travelled well and high efficiency of the crew and the SB support crew (B.McDavitt and J.Burton) ensured that all cargo was deployed safely and quickly. The extensive regional and local experience of R.McPhail is invaluable. We are grateful for the exceptional support by HNO.
