"Step Away From The Fence And Put Away The Camera!"

Tuesday afternoon, heading into work, the drive takes me past the airport. I always glance in the direction of the US Antarctic Op. hangars to see what's there. Usually a C17 Globemaster or an occasional C 130 Hercules. Last week the NASA DC 8 was visible.

But Tuesday? "Holy Crap!" I muttered, reached for my camera....curses! Left it at home again. I count two C17s and six C 130-Ts (The USAF ones with distinctive orange tail), and a big grey tail fin I didn't recognise. That evening I ID'd it as an RNZAF 757-200, used for shuttling scientists and dignitaries around in comfort.

Yesterday, Wednesday 22 Feb, I was armed and ready. Took the right turn around the back road to airport, straight past the front fence of the base, parked up in the Antarctic Centre (public tourist attraction), and sprinted back up the road.

The two C17s were gone, but everything else was there, so I started snapping pics. As I approached the security gate and stood in the driveway trying to get a good shot, the security guard came out. He wasn't smiling. I casually start wandering the other way, and see another dayglo vest and security tag emerge from a hangar and begin striding purposefully in my direction (see third pic. pic below). I grin and wave innocently, and back away to the other side of the road. The fun's over and I'm late for work.

My supervisor asks what the holdup was? "Oh, just nearly got arrested by the USAF" I say casually. "Oh, nothing unusual for you then" he says shaking his head slowly.

It's nearly end of the summer at the Ice, and these C130s are probably migrating northwards. Maybe they will investigate the nuclear incident that just happened in the Arctic?

Enjoy the pics guys!

I took a pic on 1 march of said gray c17 at Jacksons bay, west coast. (Can fwd pic if wanted) Flying low around 9am following the coast south. Later around 7pm it flew very low over the bay and went back inland.

You are right of course Ken, I couldn't agree more.

Behind the scenes I do look at this stuff, including flat earth, N#biru, the whole works, for the very reasons you state. I just won't publish direct links to this stuff as not everyone understands the need for discernment, and I have been on the receiving end of claims of spreading disinformation. We admins are treading on eggshells mate!

Thanks for the clarification Ken, and good to know you are a cautious and discerning seeker.

Martin; Regarding Fulford, I totally agree he is a CIA shill, but as all mis-info agents do to give credibility, there is truth mixed in with the BS. Our job is to use discernment to wiggle the truth out of the rest of the patty pile.

Attn. Ken.

Check out my comments at the link above for a little reality check.

The activity at the airport is usually heightened at this time of year. Two C17s is somewhat unusual, and perhaps one or two more C130s that normally expected, but let's keep firmly grounded and our heads screwed on.

And speaking of keeping your noggin on your shoulders, I wouldn't pay too much attention to Fulford's fantasies!

Thanks for the link I'll have a looksee.

Intersting. Two days ago we had two visiting planes fly overhead with a heck of a noise. The two new F35 fighter jets just purchased by OZ defence force. Quite spectacular. If I lived in a war zone, would have been freaked. They flew all the way from Texas to be at Avalon air show this week.

I don't know if you all are up to date on it, but take a look at some of Ben Fulford's recent revelations re: Antarctica. Also American Kabuki has some pretty interesting reading regarding the going's on there as well.

Check this out.....goes hand in hand with the recent Alien civilization discoveries in Antarctica:

Comment by Martin Harris on February 23, 2017 at 23:34

LJF, there was one C17 there today, but Tuesday there were two, both light grey.

One is normal, two isn't, even for this time of year.

Maybe some joint scientific operation/data sharing with the new Socrates mission? Why are so many investing investing in this new experimental project inSO (Southern ocean)?? - BOM, Noahh, University of washington, Monash University, etc. etc.

Good work Martin - why are they so precious!! about photos I wonder.

PS I am sifting through the Socrates pdf and trying to make some sense of it too.
