Santa’s Sleigh

An Alaska Air National Guard C-130 Hercules, acting as Santa's sleigh, keeps warm in sub-zero temperatures on the ground near the village of Allakaket, Alaska, during an Operation Santa Claus mission, Nov. 19, 2011. Under Operation Santa Claus, Alaska National Guardsmen and volunteers deliver toys, clothing, books, school supplies, fresh fruit, and sundaes to children in communities across Alaska each year.
