The Royal Yacht Skytanic is steaming through the skies en-route to Belleville. Soon she will reach the Northern Floating Icefield and the welcome sight of ‘Trusty Rusty’, the twenty-year old floating lightship and its accompanying beacons, stationed to guide air travellers through the perilous sykcicles.
The four-man crew of Trusty Rusty spend over a year on board at a time, facing huge winds and temperatures that drop below -40° in order to keep the sky traffic traversing the route safe.
Flickr’s Markus Ronge has photographed the old lightship beautifully and you can see more of his stunning imagery via Flickr, plus you can remind yourself of the Skytanic’s grand departure from the Maersk Pier and the other boats from the ‘Full Steam’ universe previously featured by clicking here.
