Novelist David Joseph, author of Korea x 2 and The Bully & Other Stories has written a military short story on the first C-5 to land on the frozen ocean of Antarctica. After interviewing C-5 crew members that have gone to the “ice,” and from David Joseph’s own trips to the “ice,” he delivers a classic aviation short story.

A certain fear of losing the plane came to him. The shivering returned. He could not help thinking of a ship sinking, he thought, and the captain going down with the ship. But a plane sinking and a C-5!
