Helicopter Survey - 14 photos

Quest helicopter
A bird's eye view of the physiography of the island. These views are through the open windows of the Quest helicopter as it surveyed the island and transported scientists and supplies. Flying off the ship deck with an extremely experienced pilot, we had "no worries, mate!"

The flight begins over Northwest Point, and continues in a clockwise direction around the island, finishing with a low pass over the coast at Lulu Bay.

Flight Locations: The locations covered by the flight are shown below.
