Flight to Antarctica

Members of the National Science Foundation take their seats on a Globemaster plane at Christchurch airport in August 2007. They were taking a winter flight to McMurdo Station in the Antarctic as part of the Operation Deep Freeze programme. Deep Freeze, which is based at Christchurch, was one example of the close scientific and cultural cooperation of the United States and New Zealand from the 1950s.
