Pole rescue 'no big deal'
from The Canadian Press
It was so dark it was like being locked in a closet. It was almost cold enough to damage crucial plane parts. The flight in a small, overloaded bush plane to the South Pole was nine hours each way and there was nothing in between. So to the outside world the Antarctic rescue flight of two sick Americans in June from a remote South Pole station sounded daring. To the two Canadian pilots who crisscrossed the icy continent in June said it was really no big deal, but they said they were grateful to learn that the two people they rescued are home and on the mend.
