The North Pole flight team flew this morning from Longyearbyen to Barneo, then on to the North Pole!  They had a great celebration and spent quite a long time at the Pole, taking photos, drinking champagne and Aurora Borealis and soaking in the stark beauty of being at the top of the world.  They returned to Barneo for the overnight and were treated to special performances by a rock band of locals from Longyearbyen.

The ski teams spent the day packing up all their gear and sleds, taking them to the airport for the weigh in to get them loaded on the Antonov to head to Barneo on the morning flight tomorrow.  The teams will fly on the afternoon flight around 5 PM.

Driving the sleds to the airport, the teams saw this seal on an ice floe
