Narrative

Plateau glaciaire constituant le bord ouest du glacier de l'Astrolabe, entre le nunatak du Bon-Docteur et le fond de la baie Pierre-Lejay ; nom donné en souvenir des hélicoptères "Djinns" de l'aviation légère de l'Armée de Terre, et de l'atterrissage forcé de janvier 1959 peu avant le déclenchement d'une longue et violente tempête. Toponyme non retenu sur une carte marine classique, mais pouvant présenter un intérêt scientifique ou patrimonial.
