An LC-130 Hercules from the 109th Airlift Wing, New York Air National Guard, takes off as part of Operation Deep Freeze, Feb. 2, 2011, in Antarctica. The 55th year for Operation Deep Freeze began in October 2010 as an LC-130 Hercules, equipped with retractable ski-wheels, departed to support the U.S. Antarctic Program and the National Science Foundation's research at international sites throughout the Antarctic continent. The 109th AW is the only organization in the world that flies the ski-equipped LC-130s.
