Operation Deep Freeze

Code name for a series of United States missions to Antarctica beginning with "Operation Deep Freeze" in 1955 to 1956. The US and mobility command on 21 October 1956 landed the first plane at Williams Field McMurdo Sound, named after Richard T Williams who drowned while constructing the airfield when his tractor broke through the ice onJanuary 6, 1956. The first US Air Force aircraft to land was a C-124, nicknamed "Miss North Carolina", after a 12 and 1/2 hour flight from Christchurch New Zealand. The 10 photographs offered were taken by a crew member on Miss Carolina.
