Fixing Plane in Antarctica
Recently a New Zealand Air Force plane was grounded in the Antarctic because it need a propellar change. Technicans were flown in on an American Air Force plane and worked in the cold conditions to fix it. They had to work in rotating 10 minute shifts taking 20 minutes off in between to warm up in a hut. The repairs have been finished and after some tests the plane is expected to return to New Zealand.
