They've landed!

After keeping a close eye on the weather over the last couple of days, conditions were favourable to get a CBC Nova Scotia crew to Halifax's most remote neighbourhood: Sable Island.

The weather forecast and sand conditions on the island have been unpredictable over the last few days, making for some nail-biting moments as we awaited the all-clear to take off.

As per our policy, CBC is paying for the cost of travel as well as accommodations on the island.

CBC News: Nova Scotia will feature reports from Tom Murphy beginning Wednesday at 5 p.m.

On Thursday beginning at 6 a.m., Don Connolly will host Information Morning live from Sable Island. It will be something nobody has ever done before — the first live broadcast from Sable Island.

Stay tuned to CBC Television, CBC Radio One and www.cbc.ca/ns for the latest on Sable Island coverage.
