  • 2011 Air Mobility Command Units - 2011 Antartic Season

    USAF C17 has been making frequent flights to Antartica this past 2 weeks ex NZCH, Also beginning to see fleet of C130s from USAF/New York Air Guard

    On saturday the start of season C17 was due for maintenance and traded places with 08-8192

    Today C130 83-0491 (to become season fixture) Followed C17 08-8192 down, and C130 83-0490 arrived from PagoPago to prepare for its season later in the day.

    2 further C130s and a C5 are possibly due this week. Will try to capture those also.
