12/10/2003 Entry: "A home-built, single-engine aircraft flying over the South Pole"

"Johanson's flight made him the first person to fly a home-built, single-engine aircraft over the South Pole, according to his partner Sue Bell.

"He had planned to continue to Argentina, but unusually strong headwinds caused his plane to use more fuel than expected, forcing his precautionary landing at the McMurdo-Scott base.

"Johanson asked the base for 400 litres of fuel to complete his flight, but officials refused, saying the research programs at the base do not stock fuel for private individuals."
Stranded pilot offered flight to NZ, The Australian, December 11, 2003

So, I guess my question is, how often do home-built, single-engine aircrafts flying over the South Pole make emergency landings at the McMurdo-Scott base?
