In a first for the Australian Antarctic Program, nine tonnes of cargo was parachuted from the back of a Royal Australian Air Force C-17A Globemaster III and on to the sea ice near Davis research station yesterday. The C-17A was refuelled by a KC-30A Multi-Role Tanker Transport - high above the Southern Ocean - half-way through the 10,000km round trip mission. The cargo was predominately food based, including fresh lemons and carrots, and also included medical supplies and telecommunications equipment. These photos were captured from the sea ice by Barry Becker. www.antarctica.gov.au/news/2017/mid-air-refuel-extends-reach-of-australian-antarctic-program
