Mulder and Scully head off to Alaska when the scientists working on the Arctic Ice Core project have seemingly gone crazy and killed each other. The project team had just beaten the record for the deepest core sample when they soon began to act oddly. Along with two scientists and a helicopter pilot, the agents arrive at the deserted post and soon find that an ancient micro-organism from one of the deep core samples is responsible. The helicopter pilot is the first affected and has to be restrained. One other of the group is also infected and the chief scientist in the group thinks it's Mulder. Written by
Did You Know?
The aircraft flying Fox Mulder, Dana Scully and the team to the Arctic station is a New Zealand registered (ZK-CKT) Cessna 185D s/n 185-0929. As the ZK is part of the registration it makes it easy to identify as a New Zealand aircraft but makes it possible the footage is from outside New Zealand if the aircraft operated domestic only the ZK prefix would not be physically required on the aircraft as part of the registration.

(at around 2 mins) The agents arrive at what is called "Doolittle Airfield Nome, Alaska". There is a Nome airport, and the smaller "Nome City Field", but no Doolittle Field in real life. See more
This is Agent Mulder. We have a serious biological hazard. Request air pick-up and quarantine procedures. Over.
Come in, Doolittle Airfield.
We copy, Agent Mulder. This area is under a heavy storm and no aircraft can get out for the next day. Maybe the military base in Kotzebue can set up a quarantine. Advise immediate evacuation. The arctic storm is bearing in your direction. Over.
We were told we'd have three clear days of weather. Over.
Welcome to the top of the world, sir.
