Saturday Night Ops
Christmas in the Snow
Saturday 21st December 2019 1800-2300 NZDT / 1600-2100 AEDT / 0500-1000 UTC


Normally a New Zealand Christmas is associated with sun and beaches, but not this year. Tonight we take our planes down to Antarctica, to experience a 'snowy' Christmas. Fly as many flights as possible between the 4 major Antarctica airports: McMurdo Sound Sea Ice Runway (NZIR), Pegasus Field Blue Ice Runway (NZPG), South Pole Station (NZSP) and Williams Field (NZWD). For those pilots with a longer flight in mind leave Christchurch with supplies for the team down south and fly into one of the Antarctica airports! Try and fly as many legs as possible in any order!


Scenary is recomended for P3D or FSX: ... tarctica-x
