Would it possible for Boeing 747 freighters to land and take off from there? What challenges would exist, other than the obvious (visibility can be bad and low fuel is an issue for fuel)?

Now days it's pretty much C-130s (VX6 I think) from the Navy.
|Quoting yellowtail (Reply 12):|
I am curious...I assume they don't take fuel in Antartica and tanker in what they need since they are going out empty (presumably)....or do aircraft like the C5 do air to air enroute?
|Quoting flyDTW1992 (Reply 13):|
They fly in from Christchurch, so most of these aircraft should be able to tanker in most of what they need. There is a supply of jet fuel at McMurdo though.
