  McMurdo airport on the ice.jpg - The McMurdo airport, "Williams Field," is entirely on the thick ice of Ross Sea’s McMurdo Sound. Ski equipped C-130 cargo planes are parked in the foreground and an R4D (DC-3, so called Gooney Bird) is seen in the distance. These planes flew daily during the summer months to resupply and transport personnel to the distant research stations, including South Pole Station, Byrd Station, Plateau Station and even a flight to Russia's Vostok Station.
