  McMudo Station, Mt. Erebus volcano in background.jpg - This is an aerial view of McMurdo Station, Antarctica, the primary U.S. staging point. McMurdo’s population is more than 1,200 during the six months of daylight, but decreases to 120 during the long, dark winter of isolation between flights. An active volcano, Mt. Erebus vents a wisp of smoke in the background. This was taken above the runway on frozen sea ice in the Ross Sea. Flights land and take off from the frozen sea, even huge air force jet transports. C-130s equipped with skis are used to land on high glaciers and at inland stations.
