Antarctic exploration and science support aircraft

Generally US aircraft that flew in and out of Christchurch, New Zealand (where I grew up). My father went to the ice 11 times (glaciologist) so I got to see a lot of polar aircraft.

VXE-6 Sikorsky S58. Noisy, un-reliable, slow. But a brave start

Bell UH-1N Twin Huey. Used every summer in the Antarctic Dry Valleys for science research support (1972-1990s). I see they now use Bell 412s and AS350s
