In December 2009, Dan spent 10 days working with a group of Sami reindeer herdsman in the Artic Circle.
Conditions were down to -27c, with a windchill factor of -42c!
The was the coldest conditions Dan had flown in,and it was one of his most challenging assignments so far. You can see some of the image from the trip Here.
The extreme cold made it difficult for the engine to start due to the fuel almost freezing! The air was so thin, and there was no wind it made it almost possible for him to take off. The matter didn't help when he had to wear so many layers of clothing.
Dan in in the process of working with a production company to produce a film about the flying reindeer heardsman. Watch this space for more info.
