Another plane arrived at the Pole last week to refuel before continuing on to McMurdo Station. This one, however, departed with a couple of additional passengers. Two of the 39 winterovers who have been isolated at the South Pole station for the past nine months boarded that plane as the first leg of their journey back home. IceCube winterovers Josh and Martin are still among the remaining crew. They were busy last week with a trip out to the IceCube Lab to replace some faulty power supplies. And Martin was also busy photographing the plane arrival and departure. The last image below shows the departing plane as it flew in a 180-degree turn over the IceCube Lab.
