A U.S. Air Force cargo plane flying in extreme cold dropped nearly a ton of medical and other supplies at the South Pole on Sunday on a 15-hour, 6,000-mile mercy mission from New Zealand. The flight was organized to aid a staff member at a U.S. scientific station. The unidentified 47-year-old woman has discovered a lump on her breast but cannot be evacuated until the long winter ends in October.
