Ice and Medicine at the end of the earth

Aerial Views from a C-130 Window

We passed over some amazing views of the Transantarctic Mountains on a recent C-130 flight to the South Pole.  This is a slideshow of the views from the back window of the airplane.  The last aerial slideshow that I posted was from the window of a twin otter.  You can see that we were flying at a much higher altitude in the C-130.  The scattered clouds during the flight created interesting shadows across the glaciers and peaks.

You can slow down the slide show by moving your cursor over the picture.  Then click stop and navigate at your own pace.  Enjoy!
