#NASA_Earth_Observat New posts in the Notes from the Field blog - Goin' ROGUE!:
Tom Neumann and I are en route to Greenland’s ice sheet for about two weeks of field work. Yesterday morning we flew from warm and sunny Maryland to Schenectady, New York, where we stocked up on food. This morning we got up at 4:30am in order to catch a ride on a LC-130 cargo plane with the Air National Guard flying out of Stratton Guard Base. It’s a lot like taking a commercial flight (check-in, security checkpoint, a lot of waiting), but without beverage service or proper seats! We were treated to a brief stopover in Goose Bay, Newfoundland where we could get some ice cream and refuel the aircraft. After refueling people and airplane, we discovered the airplane did not want to restart, so we have stayed for the night, while the crew works to fix the problem. So tonight, we are in Goose Bay, Labrador!
