Glacier Girl and Miss Velma, along with their pilots and support staff and aircraft, made it to Goose Bay yesterday, encountering some difficult weather en route. Wearing survival gear, Steve Hinton (piloting GG) in company with Ed Shipley in the Mustang, flew with the PC-12 mothership, flown by Rod Lewis, into Goose Bay from Presque Isle, Maine.

Weather over Greenland is keeping them on the ground today, which was a scheduled maintenance day, so they are currently on track.
