Aerial images of the approach to McMurdo

Military cargo aircraft tend not to have very good windows for folks in back... Got a few pictures out of the small windows.

The sea ice breaking up as we get closer to McMurdo and Ross Island. (So, the Antarctic ice sheet sits on top of land, and in a few places there is exposed land, one of those places is Ross Island home of McMurdo.)
Open water channel. Not sure on the map where we were exactly. These last couple of shots were taken from the cockpit.
