Hovering helicopter picks up supplies on frozen Kainan Bay, where the icebreaker U.S.S. Glacier left them. Soon the machine will leap the Ross Shelf, in background, and deliver its cargo to Little America V, atop the ice shelf. 556 JATO bottles spurt flame as a Navy Nep tune blasts aloft on summer's first flight from Mc Murdo Sound to the South Pole. Photographers hunch over cameras; crash trucks stand by. Pas sengers will replace men who wintered at the Pole. KODACHROMESBY DAVIDS. BOYER, NATIONALGEOGRAPHICSTAFF© N.G.S.
