10.15 am order to get ready – we were flying at 10.45. By 10.30am my pulk/sled was on the plane following the last photos. 11.15am everyone was on the plane after saying the last goodbyes (yep my weakness again -god darn it!) …. And we were off. Wooohooooooo! Hercules Inlet here we come. I have to say, as we took off feelings were overwhelming …. Fily…. Its at moments like this that I know that my last message and correspondence would be to my father …moreso as we had spoken many times of this dream…. But onward … Looking forward as always…. 12.00 there were some shaking of heads and hand slicing the neck. Sadly the ‘hole’ was no longer and the pilots weren’t able to fly/land as there isnt a runway there (nor guides, station, flares etc) so pilot vision is important!
