FEW YEARS LATE, GLACIER GIRL RETURNS TO EUROPE
22, a P-38 Lightning will leave Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to
finish a mission it started 65 years ago. For more than 60 years,
Glacier Girl (as the plane is now called) was buried under the
ice of Greenland after it and seven other aircraft were forced down in
bad weather while flying to England in 1942. Ed Shipley, a well-known
heritage flight air show pilot, will be flying chase in a P-51 and he
spoke with AVweb's Russ Niles about what this flight means, not
only for the heritage of this particular aircraft, but for fighting
forces all over the world.
