The engineers tidy up the second engine that failed. The airship can again count on the thrust of a second propeller. Nobile starts exchanging radiotelegraphic communications with the arrival base, in Ny-Ålesund. The visibility is very bad due to the fog and the airship is forced to use a lot of caution during its approach. Around 5 am the fog gradually dissolves and at 6.40 on 7 May the NORGE throws the landing cable, greeted by the cheers of the staff, Italian and Norwegian, who are waiting for him on the field. There are also Amundsen and Ellsworth, who left Leningrad early to assist in the preparations for Svalbard.
