The N24/N25 flight towards the North Pole (1925)

With economic support from Lincoln Ellsworth, Roald Amundsen hoped to reach the North Pole by flying over the ice.

The six men in the two flying boats reached 87°43' N before landing in leads in the drift ice.

"Victory awaits him, who has everything in order - luck we call it.  Defeat is definitely due for him, who has neglected to take the necessary precautions - bad luck we call it"
