ANTARCTICA- A loadmaster from the New York Air National Guard's 109th Airlift Wing directs the loading of cargo on board an LC-130 "Skibird" on Jan. 24, 2020. The wing flies equipment and people across Antarctica in support of the National Science Foundation's research on the continent. Loading gear on board an LC-130 is like playing Tetris, the video game that requires matching different shapes in places where they will fit.
