Although it was very cloudy when we left the McMurdo Ice Shelf, there were great views over Antarctica on our flight back to Christchurch (New Zealand). We had chance to go up to the cockpit and meet the pilots with incredible views over Antarctica.

After more than two month it is time to go back to the Natural History Museum, to study all of the amazing samples that we collected. The field work however would not be possible with the help of a lot of people and the logistic support: Thanks to the US Antarctic Program, Antarctic New Zealand Program, National Institute of Water and Aquatic Research, University of Canterbury, and everybody in the field teams G-441 and K081.
