• Caption: Trans-Antarctic Mountains from the cockpit of an LC-130 on the way to the South Pole at 84 10' S, 167 0' E. The glacier 15 miles in the distance at left is the Beardmore (the route taken by Shackelton and Scott). Mt. Kirkpatrick (4528 m, 14,856 ft) is just below the plane in the foreground.
