This Herc crashed while attempting to takeoff at McMurdo Station Antarctica, 15/02/1971. It was scrapped in Antarctica. It was the the third aircraft lost during Deep Freeze 71. This Hercules was taxiing on the skiway at Williams Field for a flight to Christchurch New Zealand. It taxied around the Ground Controlled Approach building in poor visibility, and the left main ski went up over a 5 1/2 foot snow bank. The right wing hit the ground and broke between the two engines. A fire, fed by fuel and fanned by high winds destroyed the aircraft
