169 viewsOur pilots for the southern traverse: Jonas and Tomas. Jonas (left) is from Iceland and a legendary pilot in Greenland. Koni has known him for 25 years, back when Jonas was somewhat of a daredevil pilot from the stories Koni told us. Tomas (right) is from Denmark. Both spoke English fairly well.
