Product description

This pictorial review retraces the history of the four R4D aircraft that were sent to the Antarctic continent in 1965 in support of deep Freeze II Operations†

This is the most detailed profile ever compiled fon these airplanes and their crews.†

Ronald Stephano worked ten years on this book with a facinating result.

It includes the technical details of this Antarctic version of the R4D backed by rare restored colour photographs, day to day operations are described with first hand accounts of two of the men that lived the adventure.

Information of the timeline of the planes rounds off the story of these Antarctic fliers.

A dedicated chapter provides a photographic record on the physical details of the sole surviving R4D 'Que Sera Sera" now on display at the Naval Aviation Musum in Pensacola†

Many pictures, charts, and profiles with even colour scheme decriptions are include as well as an overview of available models, both kits as well as diecast collectors models†

A true labour of love!†
