Mid Winter Airdrop to the South Pole/McMurdo

This is the companion cover to the one shown on my other page at

I received these large (approximately #10 in size) flight covers apparently courtesy of Max Hamilton, New Zealand cachet maker in 1985, and was startled to see when I received them that they were postmarked a year in advance. Not quite sure of the story on that, but they are wonderful covers! This flight was piloted by Col. Jerry McKimmey, USAF, on a C-141B Starlifter.
