The last leg of the trip to Pole is by LC-130 Hercules,a ski-equipped military cargo plane. This is Willi field, where only skiers can land and take off. There are 6 Hercs devoted to the McMurdo- Pole route. This year they did well over 300 flights in three and a half months. Filename: 143_4315.JPG
