Arctic Air Documentary

Campus Calendar

Wednesday, February 9, 2011
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Location: 110 Moon Library

Event Description: The documentary’s producer, Amy Manley, will be introducing the piece and answering questions afterward. Dr. Charlie Hall is featured in an interview in the documentary.

"Flying the world’s only ski-equipped C-130 Planes, the 109th Airlift Wing out of Scotia New York has provided vital support for international polar researchers for over two decades.

The men and women of this National Guard unit expertly transport supplies, cargo and crew to Antarctica and the Greenland ice sheet… enduring temperatures barely above those at which their fuel and hydraulic fluid would gel. Over a barren white landscape with no natural landmarks, these highly trained pilots must land their aircraft on a trackless sheet of ice. It’s a finely tuned balance of raw skill and constant training that makes each precarious mission anything but routine.

And as more and more focus is placed on the Greenlandic Ice Sheet as the center for arctic research, these extraordinary missions continue to endow scientists all over the globe with the critical data that is now shaping our political policies on the divisive topic of Global Warming."
