Not likely. The VH number makes the plane registered
in Australia. Could be Mt Erebus in Antarctica.

Homebuilt Pilot Stranded In Antarctica
By Russ Niles, Newswriter, Editor

It looks like a famous Australian aerial adventurer who flew his RV-4 to
Antarctica will be taking a Hercules home -- and leaving his aircraft
behind (after disassembly) until (perhaps) February. Jon Johanson, who
in 2000 flew his Vans homebuilt aircraft from Australia to EAA
AirVenture Oshkosh and back again, was on a new record-setting flight
from New Zealand to Argentina, via the South Pole, when higher-than-
forecast winds forced him down. The unplanned fuel stop was at the
McMurdo Station scientific outpost on Monday. But officials for the
National Science Foundation (NSF), which runs McMurdo and New Zealand's
nearby Scott Base, have (so far) refused to fly in the 400 liters of
fuel he needs to complete his journey. NSF officials say they are
following a long-established policy.
