Rescue on Mt. Elizabeth - Antarctica

Postby schrund » Fri Jan 25, 2013 10:32 pm

Sounds like a plane crashed at 13k in the Queen Alexandra Range, a more challenging resuce is difficult to imagine :shock:: http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/25/world/antarctica-missing-plane/index.html?hpt=hp_t3
We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, and winding streams... as "wild". Only to the white man was nature a "wilderness".

13,000 feet in Antarctica... not the place to be stuck. Hope it works out for them.
