Ice, Ice Runway

I have traveled further North today; far into the Arctic.    The weather is grim and the winds are 45mph+

Our little plane has struggled at times.  On landing on one runway, we promptly slid backwards down the ice, blown by the wind!  The pilot had to restart the engines and hold us steady until the ground crew could chock the wheels to hold us steady in the wind.

We did not get to Hammerfest today, instead I am staying in Trømso for the night.
