Helicopter at Polaria

Being in the Arctic, we do occasionally get the odd vehicle parked outside the main building. Sometimes tractors, often off-road 4x4 vehicles, occasionally snow-mobiles.

But yesterday the carpark had a different vehicular visitor!

Look what's parked out the front of Polaria! (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)

I'd be nervous flying so close to those trees! (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)

Cool, eh? (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)


The helicopter is here for an FMI experiment. The payload is a series of chemical sensors which are being used to monitor gas species in the atmosphere.

  1. Do you know, where they are taking the measurements? I think I saw it in Inari today. (Or at least a similar helicopter.)
