McMurdo Landing


Landing of our big and heavy plane on the sea ice at McMurdo. The underlying ice is about 7 feet thick, the height of a tall basketball player! It´ an amazing example of just how strong ice is. The Airfield arrangement, a C-130 military plane, and Mount Erabus –“ smoking a little bit –“ are visible. Credit: M. Marinova
