** Pattullo Ice Station **
« on: June 16, 2015, 06:11:42 AM »
Having read the description for the Pattullo Ice Station scenery how could I not take a trip there is investigate this fantastic location!

Having spent a day after arriving at Stewart becoming a little more familiar with the area and checking over the Maule we (my co-pilot being my six year old son today) fuelled up and off we set.





Heading directly north from Stewart in great weather conditions.



My six year old son demonstrating a coordinated turn for me.  Glad we had the belts on!





It is a short flight up the valley before we come to the first turn.  We begin the climb to 7000ft to clear the mountains.



Climbing hard but the Maule being lightly loaded is handling it just fine.



Not far to go and we should have a visual on the station sometime soon.





A fly-by of the airstrip reveals a large boulder about half way down the strip.  Extra care needed.









What a eerie place....

Another very enjoyable flight and a superb storyline for this abandoned base.

Shortly after arrival we shut down everything on the Maule while trying to isolate some peculiar sounds.  I couldn't exactly describe them other than very strange  sounds.  Perhaps a loose building panel flapping in the wind, maybe just the wind moves around the location...either way it was unusual!

Love  the snow and the vastness of the area... It a lonely place.  Great shots and hope you have many more co-pilots moments with your son.
