Leningradskaya - Radar
The radar dome at the abandoned 'Leningradskaya'
research base in Oates Land. The last occupants clearly
left in a hurry when the base closed in 1992 - everything valuable
and portable was stripped out, but the empty crew quarters still
have faded posters on the walls and old equipment and vehicles
lie scattered and rusting in the snow around the battered buildings.
