Handout Photo - Hi Fly has made history by landing an Airbus A340 in Antarctica for the first time. Never before has an A340 landed on an Antarctic blue glacial ice runway. The aircraft will be used this season to fly a small number of tourists, alongside scientists and essential cargo to the White Continent. The Hi Fly 9H-SOL is an A340-313HGW (High Gross Weight) with a maximum take-off weight of 275 tons. Its exceptional range and 4-engine redundancy makes it ideal for this type of remote operation. Also, as there is no fuel in Wolf's Fang Runway, Antarctica, the plane carried 77 tons of fuel. Photo by Marc Bow/Hi Fly via ABACAPRESS.COM
