2007-08 Aerial Photos--January 2008--Skiway

land here?
Starting out at the downwind end of the freshly prepped new section of skiway, to be used in the 2008-09 summer (GG).
stripped down
Looking straight up the skiway...somewhere down there is the rest of the buried 917 aircraft, less tail. The center of the future skiway section still has the approach flags for the existing skiway (GG).
past the turn
Just past the turnaround, the shadow of the Twin Otter is visible. I've cranked up the contrast on some of these to make things more visible...including the trail from the left to the end of the existing skiway. That is the South Pole Traverse approach route (GG).

Past the station heading south again, into the sun (GG).
way south
And here we are back way south of the station (GG).
Now over to the dark sector!
