Thursday 11. may, St. Nord

Departure for Station Nord at 08:00 local. After two and a half hours of flight we arrive at Bord at 13:30 local time. There is 3 hours time difference between Thule and Nord. Station Nord has UTC (Zulu) time. The C130 was totally full and the 109ht called the C130 ‘the Vaseline plane’ because the load needed oil on all sides in order to fit into the C130. Weather was exellent. We flew over Flade Isblink and noted that the route to the south looked most promising. We got quartered in Building 19. The snow reaches the roof of Building 19, but the door was free. After lunch and a group picture with Jim Grubb, the 109th returned. A great THANKS to Jim Grubb on his last mission to Greenland. We hope to meet you again in the future. The rest of the day and evening was used for sorting out cargo.
