MD..I could not agree more
yingling ..... it makes me wonder why people would choose to live on a spec of an island but I bet the community spirit is very strong.
I have been waiting to see the helicopter. Took a while but I finally did . I enjoyed reading all the links about this tiny place.
Hi yingling ....... I've never seen it move.
Hi all , I saw the helicopter leave today. Ice seems to be melting now.
Such a tiny island.
Either that or it broke down and the pilot is having to stay on the island until help arrives.
in their summer time the helicopter must stay parked there. http://prntscr.com/fj90kw and http://prntscr.com/fj9193
Way557 ..... well spotted. Reading earlier comments - the helicopter only comes here twice a week.
You guys missed the helicopter. http://prntscr.com/e69n13
Yes ... genuinely nice guy ... I also remember him from the Pimms ads, lol! :D
Thanks Mira .... I didn't see any of it but I'll be sure to look on ITVplayer. I love Alexander Armstrong in Pointless.
Btw, MD ... according to Mr Armstrong, the helicopter flies out here twice a week. I'm not sure if you saw any of the programmes (there were only three) but if you can catch them on the ITV iplayer (or whatever it's called) it's well worth it. :)
I just watched the final part of "In the Land of the Midnight Sun with Alexander Armstrong" and at the very end of his journey he flew out to Little Diomede Island! Amazing! :)
It's an interesting place.
Here's the cam page ... http://siteproxy.bssd.org/2/control.html
Fascinating article MD, thanks! :)
This isn't new but sheds some light on how important that helicopter is. As always ..... some stupid comments.
I'm sure they wouldn't forget that! I wonder how often the helicopter visits. It's an intriguing place. I wonder if they have long drop loos. I'd love to go there .... but only for a day ... to see how they do things. I shouldn't think they have a refuse collection. My mind is whirring!!!!
Helicopter's back again ... maybe they forgot the booze. ;)
Boggling. Scant vegetation and no industry as such. I guess they eat a lot of fish but I worry about their fibre. 110 people at the last census. Must be a very close knit community. As you say ..... fascinating.
