            Antarctica doesnt care who recognizes it as whatever, in my opinion no one should own the earth, it is all ours... one day that will be reality, but people are still too closedminded for such a mindset...

                            I think I just answered my own question. It looks like a Boeing C-17 Globemaster aircraft which is primarily used to carry large cargo and sometimes troops.

                                        Don't tell Trump about the Antarctic treaty or he'll probably cancel it and turn Antarctica over to the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans and Syrians.

                                              I was at McMurdro Station (at the time 2:51 in the video) on two separate deployments (2018 Summer, 2019 Winter) for 7 month increments flying in on the Air Force C-17 from Christ Church, New Zealand. We had 115 people during the Winter and 600 during Summer) . Most memorable time of my life! Seeing all of the "Southern Lights" (auroras) which are predominately bright green is absolutely breath-taking. Also, at 4:44 Pegasus Air-Field is no longer used (same with Willy Air Field) - we now use Phoenix Airfield which is about 5 minutes away from Pegasus (like the video says)

Do you know what a Canis lupus familiaris is?.. I prefer German Shepherd... doctors and drug dealers use metric when dealing with less than an eighth of an oz.. grams and milliliters. As soon as it gets to 3.5 grams its an eighth of an ounce (8 ball)!.. mechanics use 2 tool sets- metric and standard.. metric to work on foreign cars... all joking aside metric does make more sense in most cases.. what it needs is something in between a centimeter and a meter.. saying someone is 6ft tall sounds better than 2 yards or 1.83 meters or 182.9 centimeters..or 72 inches.. my grandfather said that in the 70s they made a major national effort in all the school systems to convert to metric but it just did not work... well, that's all I have to say. Peace

The only thing we use it for is to measure some drugs like cocaine and marijuana and then not completely..

Many of my friends were lucky enough to go, but not so lucky myself. Also, very grateful for the Aeromedical Evacuation teams that are always ready to risk life to save someone in need of emergency medical evacuations out of Antarctica.

It is the most inhospitable, beautiful and unusual places I was blessed to get paid(unhandsomly) to go to. Unfortunately I was to young (18-19 ) to know how special it was. If you plan on going be prepared for the variety of personalities.
