What a smooth landing on snow and ice! Impressive how they applied the reverse thrusters before the nose wheel touched down! B767-300ER landing at Troll airfield in Antarctica in January 2022. Icelandic pilots and crew operated this flight with a group of scientists from Cape Town, South Africa and landed on the icy runway.
Antarctica, the southernmost continent and site of the South Pole, is a virtually uninhabited, ice-covered landmass. Antarctica has no commercial industries, no towns or cities, no permanent residents. The only "settlements" with longer term residents (who stay for some months or a year) are scientific bases.
