NZ team makes Antarctic airdrop to aid stricken boat
The Royal New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) is to deliver another fuel pump to a listing Russian fishing boat that is stranded in Antarctic waters with 32 crew on board.
A Hercules plane, which has already delivered one pump to the stricken Sparta crew, will be used for the seven-hour flight to the Ross Sea.
On Tuesday, the NZDF released video of the first mission to the scene, about 3,700km (2,300 miles) from New Zealand.
