WATCH: 76,000 lb Hurcules C-130 Ski Landing on Greenland Icecap

So much room for activities! Check out this 76,000 lb Lockheed Martin Hercules C-130 piloted by a New York Air National Guard crew landing on a Greenland icecap runway. The New York Air National Guard’s 109th Airlift Wing’s mission is to provide support to the National Science Foundation’s South Pole research program.

Can you imagine packing this baby full of helicopters, sleds and maybe even living quarters and flying of ski missions across the globe? I wonder what the runway requirements would be for a plane this large on skis?Wyoming Air National Guard C-130H Hercules Wyoming Air National Guard C-130H Hercules Wyoming Air National Guard C-130H Hercules Wyoming Air National Guard C-130H Hercules
