Got this info regarding this tail number:

On 22 June 1981 I was a crew member aboard 60128 out of Norton AFB CA. This aircraft and crew made the first mind-winter airdrop on the South Pole Station and McMurdo station in Antarctica.

We departed Christchurch NZ, were air refueled and then made our first drop at McMurdo. We then went on to the Pole station and made our drop there.. We were in the air for 15.3 hours that day.

I'm attaching the Certificate we were all given because it shows the tail number. I'll also send two messages from personnel at McMurdo and the Pole station. These really made our day..........(I'll send them in another e-mail)
