085_Norwegians

Lars Christensen funds extensive coastal exploration in concert with his whaling exploits. A decade of Norwegian effort gets compressed into a single chagrined episode. Mens "Norvegia" lå i isen nord for Enderby Land og ventet på flyvær, ble alt utstyr for flyvning til land gjort klart.
The Norwegia: a tiny ship covered in tiny aircraft heading to a big continent.

Link to Frank Hurley’s footage and narration of the DH Moth taking orf on gentle swell.  Terrifying stuff.

Episode 085 is available here.
