Working in the far north requires a great deal of planning and real challenges face researchers when considering how to get to an area. Burntpoint Creek Research Camp is a remote camp which requires air transport to get there. While a helicopter can get you there, they really can’t carry all the gear and equipment necessary to survive for several weeks. So a airplane becomes necessary. Obviously there isn’t a runway, so it requires a plane which can land on less than prefect areas. At Burntpoint, this means about a 1/4 mile long gravel ridge. The Twin Otter is amazing in it’s ability to float in and land on a postage stamp and take off with almost no runway. This is a series of pictures of this great plane and the exceptional pilots which got us in and out of camp.
