Antarctica, Patriot Hills, Unloading of Hercules, Jeff Shea in foreground, 2001 - Adventure Network used a Hercules aircraft to transport passengers and tons of supplies to their camp at Patriot Hills, Chilean Antarctica. The landing is quite exciting. The passenger area in the fuselage has no windows. All you can hear is the rush of air and ice as the plane rolls on to the relatively flat 'ice strip'. Getting from the plane to the camp requires either wearing crampons (spikes on shoes) or some tricky maneuvering.
