Operation Deep Freeze main season underway
A C-17 Globemaster III taxis to its parking spot Nov. 27 on the ice runway at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, during Operation Deep Freeze. C-17s fly large cargo loads from Christchurch New Zealand to Antarctica while the LC-130 Hercules, stationed at McMurdo, fly smaller cargo loads to research posts throughout the continent. The C-17s from McChord Air Force Base, Wash., and ski-equipped LC-130s from the New York Air National Guard's 109th Airlift Wing are supporting the 13th Air Force-led Joint Task Force Support Forces Antarctica operation.
