Helicopter pilot Gísli Gíslason, who flies for Norðurflug, transported six craftsmen out to Þrídrangar lighthouse, Vestmannaeyjar islands, on Wednesday morning. The six men were there to do maintenance work.
The men spent the night in the stunning lighthouse, which was built in 1939 and is located near the Vestmannaeyjar islands, south Iceland. Accessibility is challenging as the lighthouse is situated on top of an extremely steep cliff. Luckily, Gísli and his passengers were blessed with both good weather and visibility during their flight.
“It was an amazing day!” he told the National Broadcasting Service. “We even spotted a family of killer whales swimming near the lighthouse.”
