Kevin Scully was one of the team members and expedition leader of the RAF 'Southern Reach' expedition which has attempted the trek Hercules Inlet - South Pole during autral summer season 2006-07. They had to be rescued by ALE logistic being at only 190 km from the Pole.

Born and raised near Retford North Nottinghamshire he became interested in the RAF through his time with the Air Training Corp (ATC) and as a member of MASUAS (Manchester and Salford University Air Squadron). Kevin Scully joined the RAF as a direct entrant via 160 Initial Officer Training (IOT) in October 1995 and graduated in April 1996.

His current job at MoD Boscombe Down entails testing and evaluation of the latest modifications to the Helicopters of all three Services, providing the evidence required to support Military Aircraft Release.

He is an avid sports fan with a particular passion for all things skiing related, primarily Nordic and Ski Touring and has been fortunate enough to have travelled extensively with the RAF on expeditions, to places as far a field as Hawaii. The attempt for the South Pole was the culmination of years of hard work to realise a lifetime's ambition.
