Barneo temporary Ice Camp is built by the Russians every North Pole ski season inside 89 degrees North. A long runway must be built to support various aircraft. Tractors, staff and other equipment are dropped by parachute to start clearing the ice. This season the job has proved harder than usual. In this image an IL-76 that made three flights from Murmansk to Barneo dropping fuel drums and 15 Chechen paratroopers at the camp.

Weather and currents crushing Barneo runways make start of the 2016 North Pole season look like something out of a Tom Clancy novel.

 

Statistically among most dangerous of all 8000ers; Annapurna is now first in line awaiting Himalaya summit attempts. Everest teams are chomping on the bit. PythomSpace is in Colorado Springs for the 32nd Space Symposium event. More below.
