The crew of a ski-equipped LC-130 Hercules from the New York National Guard's 109th Airlift Wing takes off July 28, 2010, from a remote science research site on Greenland's ice sheet. The 109th Airlift Wing is the only military unit in the world to fly such aircraft and has flown missions to Greenland since 1975. The unit now provides airlift support to the National Science Foundation's polar research program there. (Department of Defense photo/Fred W. Baker III)
