The most exciting and unbelievable warbird recovery ever attempted. In 1942, six P-38's and two B-17's
lost over the north atlantic made emergency landings on the Greenland icecap. 50 years later they were
located 268 feet inside the icecap. A team made a remarkable recovery of one P-38, nicknamed "Glacier
Girl". After years of painstaking work restoring it, the most beautiful sight ever was the actual
flight of the restored beauty. History channel coverage. You will say the entire episode was an impossibility.
A must have.
