What a story this is, a American fighter plane landing 65 years after it took off from the US and made a slight detour to Greenland:
It was buried under 300 ft of ice apparently. That's one way of preserving it i suppose...
Does anyone know of 'Glacier Girls' progress in flying to the UK?. Last I read was that it was delayed and she was still in Canada awaiting a weather window.
I have mixed feelings of seeing it again. The last P-38 I saw at Flying Leg Ends was flown by the great and late Hoof Proudfoot......and we all know what happened that year :-(
Is there anybody out there?
Live tracking for Glacier Girl's journey can be found here, unfortunately the Mustang she's travelling with ('Miss Velma') has had a leaking coolant pump so they're staying in Goose Bay until repairs can be made.
My wings are like a shield of steel.
Some happy news on the Mustang 'Miss Velma'.
It arrived at Duxford yesterday ready for this weekends Flying Legends.
