    SuperCub.Org at the Bottom of the World! - Jacob Papp checks in from way "down under"

    If you look at google maps, Shackleton Glacier, Antarctica is as far south as you can scroll (here, try it! https://goo.gl/maps/rS9PJUQ3wc42 )

    Jacob Papp, member and son of long time member Rick Papp flies with the 109th Airlift Wing and sent these great shots from the bottom of the Earth.

    I had the privilege of sitting back seat with Jake for a flight or two in my first Super Cub before he had finished his license. He has certainly gone places since then!

    Thanks for the pictures, Jake, and the SuperCub.Org plug!

    P.S. Jake and his lovely wife have an airstrip in NY soon to be on the sectional. Invite yourself over for dinner!

    Looks cool.

    I assume you or at least the aircraft is based in Christchurch? I often see it there. Home of fellow member Binty.

    Cheers.

    Too bad your dad can't enjoy the scenery there with you. We would enjoy it if you also left him behind.

    What would it take to get Jake to bring a C-130 into the Alton Bay Ice Runway? (12" of ice on some water...)

    I understand it's not Williams Field but hey, he can work with what we have, right?
    At an 83,000 lb operating weight, who has the ice thickness calculator handy?

    (Williams Field consists of two hard-packed snow runways located on approximately 8 meters (25 ft) of compacted snow, lying on top of 80 meters (262 ft) of ice, floating over 550 meters (1,800 ft) of water.)

    Actually the zero fuel operating weight of the LC-130 is 90000 typical fuel load for a local is 30000lbs which puts you at 120000

    Ah well, so much for being optimistic! lol. Thanks Skip. I don't see NH ever getting 150" of ice thickness.

    We takeoff regularly from Willy Field at 155,000lbs. Would love to bring up the Herk, but I don't think we would be able to get that waiver through in time. That and most of the planes are still down on "The Ice" As far as lunch goes you're welcome anytime!
