Sunrise Gondola Landing

The Sunrise Gondola, with all essential equipment intact, landed on June 17, 2013 after being aloft for about five days. The Gondola was recovered by helicopter from the Boothia Peninsula; a very remote area in Nunavut’s northern Canadian Arctic. HAO Engineer, Greg Card, was part of that recovery team.
