Antarctica 1958

Here we have the first of several photographs from the Bob Henderson collection taken during Operation Deep freeze III 1958.
A Douglas C124C Globemaster II on climb toward the Polar Plateau with two of its Pratt and Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major engines purring away - capable of 3800 hp each on a good day.
At least ten C124's operated from McMurdo during this season.
