Last night's flight with 49 passengers went without a hitch. I was at the threshold for the landing when the beast came in.
The weather looks great today. Mostly clear sky and light winds. The Ilyushin should take off from Punta Arenas this afternoon and arrive this evening. I have dug the valances of my tent out of the snow and ice in anticipation of dropping it at a moment's notice. Now in the process of packing up. Last thing I do at the base when the plane arrives is drop the antennas, unplug and box the radios, and off we go.
Have a day of debriefing and a staff dinner before departing Punta. Will send my flight arrival information when I learn it.
