More than 30 volunteer airplane pilots, dubbed the Iditarod Air Force, transport dog food and supplies to checkpoints; provide transportation for dogs that are dropped from the race, for officials and for others; and conduct search-and-rescue operations for teams that may have veered off course.

      The Iditarod race has many great stories to tell by the many men and women who help plan it, and travel the trail to help make it successful. Joe Pendergrass is one of the many people who make The Last Great Race on Earth® what it is. Joe is a member of a very special.   When that happens, a dog is checked in with race officials and vets in the checkpoint, settled in with handlers, and as soon as possible flown either back to the start in Anchorage or on to the finish in Nome, courtesy of the Iditarod Air Force. Which brings me to an all important update about the twins and their respective dogs.
