Wings Over Ice. An Account of The Falkland Islands And Dependencies Aerial Survey Expedition 1955-57.

By: Mott Peter

Price: £18.00

Publisher: Peter Mott: 1986

Edition: 1986 First Edition

Seller ID: 66604

ISBN: 0951169904

Condition: 167pp, card cover, New


More than a quarter of a century before the Falklands War took place, the dispute with Argentina and Chile over sovereignty of the Falklands and the British Dependencies in Antarctica had underlined the need for accurate maps. Consequently in 1955 the Government decided to fund a special expedition to undertake air photography and land-based control of Grahamland, now referred to as the Antarctic Peninsula. Peter Mott was assigned to organise and lead the expedition, which ultimately surveyed 35,000 square miles of hitherto unmapped territory. View more info
