Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto | This year's Greenland Caves Project expedition started similarly to the 2015 expedition: The team of nine flew up the east coast of Greenland in a Twin Otter crammed full of gear and food needed for the following few weeks. Twin Otters are noisy, unpressurized aircraft, which means that they fly fairly low, giving a good view of the landscape below. On July 4, after three Twin Otter flights, we landed on this sandy spit of land jutting out into the southwest end of Centrum Sø. You can just about make out the landing strip. From here, a helicopter transferred us in five rounds to camp 1, in Grottedalen.
