Medevac Mission by Air Force

This is somewhat old news, as I have been too busy to post about it, but I still think it is interesting. On August 28 that Air Force did a Medevac mission out of Antarctica. I found this article about it quite interesting. It seems quite a lot of work does go into flying a medevac mission in this situation. It is also interesting in that they had just finished their winter flights, but since the research season has not quite begun the Air Force was needed to do the medevac. Also, since it was after the last fly in it took even more preparations because the runway at Pegasus had already begun to be disassembled.
