Page 1 of 3 Next
This week at Casey: 6 December 2013

On Nov 28 and Dec 3, the first two A319 flights for the season landed at Wilkins Aerodrome. This has meant that expeditioners have left station after their winter and new expeditioners have arrived for the summer program. Over these two flights, 18 expeditioners, who spent just under 12 months at Casey returned to Australia. Undertaking a winter in Antarctica takes a special commitment and the current expeditioners at Casey wish all those expeditioners who have recently returned home all the best for the future.
