I watched a documentary on Glacier Girl. What an incredible story. I am so glad that they were able to restore her and I hope that they go back for the others. Much love for a priceless plane.

It's a shame that Kee Bird caught fire, the world needs another airworthy B-29.

right idea, wrong plane.

This is a P-38...

I know that 's a P-38. I was just mentioning another aircraft that was trapped in the ice.

I very nearly got to see her but sadly it did not happen! She was due to be at Flying Legends in 2007. They were going to fly her over here via Greenland so they could fly her over her recovery site. Sadly on route in Canada I believe she had an engine issue and she could not complete the flight. Someday I do hope to see her though, maybe they will try it again someday.

Oh wow! Famous plane. I'm so sad we don't have any P-38s around here. Nice one! :)

Wonder if they ever steamed out the flying fortress from under the ice? or the rest of the lightnings?

the Fortresses had been crushed by the ice, but they were able to salvage many engine parts, the bomb sights, IFF apparatus and even the guns. I think they got the other P-38s for parts...
