An LC-130 ski-equipped transport from the New York Air National Guard's 109th Airlift Wing carried a combined US-Australian medical team from New Zealand to Antarctica to retrieve a seriously injured Australian researcher and deliver him to a hospital in Australia the first week of November 2008. Here, the LC-130 sits on an improvised ice runway at Davis Station, Antarctica, during the medical evacuation mission, Nov. 3, 2008.
