In the air…

Now we know that the ski-plane landed safely 12:38 GMT today, close to were the Mt. Gunnbjörn team was waiting.

Takeoff was at 13:08 GMT. We haven’t heard yet if it happened in first attempt or if they needed more tries to succeed.

But the main thing is that they are on their way and all is good.

They will stay one night in Akureyri and the fly back to Reykjavík in the morning.
