COAST GUARD COMPLETES MISSION TO NORTH POLE
NORTH POLE 01:BARROW, Alaska--The sun rises off the right side of a Coast Guard C-130 Hercules airplane on its way to the North Pole Thursday morning. The sun soon disappeared below the horizon as the aircraft entered Arctic latitudes not reached by the rising winter sun. The sun reappeared on the horizon upon returning toward Barrow.
