In March the Russian expedition "Barneo-2014" ' was located on the North Pole.
The station functions in the Arctic from 1 to 1.5 months, when the polar day comes, there is no a strong wind, the temperature is not below 30 degrees, but ice has not melted yet.
The military-transport aircraft Il-76 delivered more than 50 tons of a cargo: generators, the food, polar tents, a tractor, fuel for helicopters, the other equipment and 15 persons of members of the polar expedition.
Members of the expedition were delivered with parachutes.
43 platforms were dumped by a dynamic way without parachutes.
The aircraft nose was raised at a low altitude and the cargo fell out of the rear hatch to the earth.
This method had provided an exact delivery of a cargo into the place because the ice floe had small sizes.
"Barneo" is in the area limited by the coordinates of 88,5-89,5 degrees of the northern latitude and from 90 to 140 degrees of the east longitude.
Polar explorers have to arrange the meeting of helicopters from Khatanga, find a place for the airfield and to build a camp for tourists and scientists for a few days.
They will arrive to "Barneo" at the beginning of April.
Scientists will investigate the Arctic within a month on a drifting ice floe.
A research station will be arranged.
Tourists can also visit the station. About 300 people from the different countries will arrive here.
Polar explorers consider that “Barneo” is a resort for real men.
An ordinary Norwegian wedding took place in an unusual place - on the North Pole in 2012.
The groom was dressed in a warm frock coat. He was a polar explorer.
The bride had a wedding dress from fur.
Newlyweds together with the Russian polar explorers were delivered to the North Pole by helicopter Mi-8 from the Russian research station “ Barneo “.
The cold weather did not prevent the newlyweds to drink champagne, but the kiss was done in the helicopter.
