Wheels Down!

I recently posted about some photos that Bill McTigue took while surveying the Arctic in the 50s. Bill also took this photo of Sir Edmund Hillary after arriving on the first plane to land at Marble Point, Antarctica in 1957. Actually, this was the first wheels-to-dirt landing in all of Antarctica. Wheels down, indeed.
