    Antarctic Snow Cruiser

    created by bigboy99899 on 2013.08.14

    Main Section
    Antarctic Snow Cruiser

    The Antarctic Snow Cruiser was a vehicle designed late 1930's, intended to facilitate transport in Antarctica. It has a very interesting and adventurous history.

    The vehicle:
    Cruiser (known as Turtle), a very innovative vehicle, designed to operate at extreme conditions.
    Plane (known as Eagle), a Beechcraft D17 Staggerwing type airplane mounted on the roof of the cruiser. (To get the airplane on or off the Cruiser, a ramp of snow was to be built-up to meet the sloping aft deck of the "Turtle".)
