Wow thats is totally crazy.
J'AIMERAIS EN SAVOIR PLUS SUR CETTE PHOTO, C'EST QUOI AU JUSTE ? BRAVO POUR LA PHOTO !
Actually two people were injured one broken leg the copilot and the other a passanger. The plane was blown off the runway by a 55 mile an hour cross wind 30 minutes after I landed in the same type plane. The storm that crashed the plane lasted for 3 days. It was called a Hawk. A D55 tractor was sent to find the plane and it fell into the cravas between the annual ice and regular ice. All the tents they set up were blown away. they stayed in the plane until help came.
The generator shack near where I was staying blew up because of the winds and all the lights went out in the Galley I was in. Now that was a nice greeting to Antarctica.
Muy Buena Foto y fantastica la historia, saludos desde Chile, Sud America
is that the plane they made a story about on video
hey martin stone;
are you still staying there? or you ve been just for a short visit?
Hi, I was in the Antarctic in the summer of '69 and am sure that this was the same aircraft that crashed on Williams field the summer before. Would love to know when this picture was taken as we (at Scott Base) all expected it to drift out and eventually drop off the ice shelf into the sea, long before now. Can anyone tell when this picture was taken..? if anyone can help, e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
Hey, Polar Mike!
Thanks for sharing all these photos. They are great and I really appreciate the opportunity to visit Antarctica vicariously through your photos.
Most of us will never have the opportunity to visit Antarctica in person, so your sharing your photos is a great gift to us. Thanks!

That is my Dad's plane. He was the flight engineer for the mission. It was his second go to the ice. Phil Wilson. Upon landing the nose gear came up through his station. He had been moved to the back of the plane for "landing" i.e. crashing. Had he been in his seat, he would have been badly injured if not killed.
Antarctica still such a crazy place. We have all the technology and all the history to look back on and accidents still happen - look just this last week, cruise ships stuck, yachts crushed by ice. Our project has a "habit" of crashing planes too, we crashed a Basler back in 2007 at Mt Paterson, which sucked. Thankfully again, relatively minor injuries. Glad your Dad and all involved walked away from it (apart from the folks who broke legs according to an earlier post and probably hobbled away from it.)
