By Antonov to the North Pole

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering and logistics partners GAC Norway and POLOG have delivered a pre-fabricated Arctic research station to northern Greenland.
The airlift involved transporting 210 tons of cargo to Station Nord on 17 Antonov An-12 charter flights out of Longyearbyen, Norway.
Just 924 km (574 miles) from the North Pole, the scientific outpost is accessible only by air. Sea ice and average temperatures of -14°C and lows of -50°C in the winter make it almost impossible to reach by supply ship.
When complete the new research facilities will monitor Arctic air pollution.
