HMP-2009 Air National Guard Flight to Resolute Bay
Yesterday an Air National Guard C-130 out of Long Island, New York left the Vancouver international airport after being loaded with gear and personnel for a flight to Resolute Bay in the Canadian high arctic. Personnel aboard included core HMP participants from the Mars Institute and Simon Fraser University.
This is the second year we've had support from the Air National Guard out of Long Island, New York. It is always much appreciated. We'll have more pictures with credits once we get them from Resolute. The support of the Air National Guard enables us to deploy cargo and people in a timely and cost effective way.
Today HMP personnel are busy organizing cargo for the first flight to the HMP Research Station on Devon Island tomorrow. Weather being what it is in the high arctic, all flights are subject to the weather and conditions on the ground at the HMP airstrip.
