Orion Medical Evacuation Turns Back Due to Blizzard
I recently posted about an Orion making a medical evacuation from Antarctica today (September 12, 2010). The medical evac did not happen, though, as the Orion was forced to turn back due to blizzard conditions at McMurdo. They will try again tomorrow if the weather conditions improve. The American waiting for evac is said to be in serious, but stable condition.
