Next Episode of Alaska Mega Machines is
Alaska is known for its great beauty and inspirational landscapes. However, it is equally as notorious for its rugged terrain, brutal winters and remote locations. Still, like everywhere, life goes on in Alaska throughout the dead of winter. Everyday tasks often become extraordinary challenges. But, with the help of colossal equipment and machines, residents are able to not only endure, but thrive and enjoy among the sub-zero temperatures, steep mountainous terrain and fragile–sometimes deadly–ice.
Alaska's Coast Guard fights dangerous waters to maintain buoys; machinery finds big rewards 800 feet below Alaska's surface; Alaskans build a steel ferry.
A barge carries an entire train along Alaska's high seas; a flying ambulance saves lives at 14,000 feet; 16 missiles stand by to prevent a nuclear disaster.
An airport made from nothing but water and ice; an Alaskan fish factory churns out millions of pounds of seafood a day; hardy vehicles brave the arctic to travel across the tundra.
Deep in the Alaskan frontier, 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle, a special mega machine keeps the state's oil industry moving. More than just a truck, it goes where others can't, hauling cargo across treacherous ice roads in the dead of winter.
