Ice Island

Yesterday on Radio Noon, fisherman Brian Kippenhuck  described seeing an awesome sight.  The crew of the Labrador Quest was about a hundred kilometres off Black Tickle, Labrador when they saw a giant slab of ice.
Brian Kippenhuck told us it was at least 5 kilometres long when he first saw it, although it later broke in two.
He said the ice was 50 metres high, complete with a couple of waterfalls.
Not only that, Brian says there's an even bigger iceberg off Northern Labrador.
Charlie Randell is the president and CEO of C-Core, which is famous for its ice engineering.
