Resupplying T-3

June 1969 (approx.)

Detailed Description

Once temperatures warmed each spring, pilots could no longer land on the ice runway to resupply T-3 with food, fuel, and spare parts and to ferry personnel to and from Alaska. During the summer months, Navy C-130s from Ellensdorf Air Force Base supplied the camp by parachute drops.  Supplies dropped in June 1969 landed on target on the ice runway.
