Lt. Col. Rob Schmidt talks with media in front of the C-17 Globemaster III, Oct. 5, 2014, as part of the U.S. Antarctic Program Day for IceFest 2014 at Christchurch, New Zealand. The day is used to educate the community members on the capabilities of the C-17 and allows them the first-hand experience of seeing the aircraft up close and personal. Schmidt is the 304th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron commander and 62nd Airlift Wing operations group deputy commander. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Todd Wivell)
