It is another mind-blowing history in the science world as the first Airbus plane lands in the icy region of Antarctica.



Different pictures are showing the incredible moment a pilot became the first to land an Airbus A340 on Antarctica.

The cargo jet was chartered by Wolf's Fang, a new luxury holiday camp at the South Pole, to bring supplies to their tourist resort.

The plane touched down on the icy runway on Tuesday after a 2,800-mile journey taking just over five hours from Cape Town.

The runway at the Wolf Fang resort is designated a C Level airport, meaning that only a highly specialized crew of pilots can fly there due to the extreme conditions.
