Trans Antarctic Expedition, getting stuck a 1/2 a world away from a tow truck, 1/2 way across a ice crevass. Look impossible to do anything about?

This 1955 Tucker Sno-Cat Type 743 Double Drive is in a bad way, half way across that crevass, and you'd think there is no way to save it from falling in, if any attempt at pulling it out were undertaken. This video shows how it was done... maybe not for this sno-cat, but one in a similar predicament.

For a full post on the Tucker Sno Cats and the expedition, I did a much more detailed and thorough one showing the remaining Sno Cats, and the Sno Kitten, and the video from the expedition

For photos I took of one up close:
