GE Aviation Lecture -- From the Ice, Back to Life: The Incredible Resurrection of "Glacier Girl"

This Lecture was presented on Wednesday, October 6 at the National Air and Space Museum's National Mall building. Learn about "Glacier Girl," the famous Lockheed P-38 that became stranded on the Greenland Ice Cap, from Bob Cardin, the man in charge of rescuing her, and Rod Lewis, her owner. On her way to Europe to fight in World War II, "Glacier Girl" made an emergency landing. Although the crew survived and was rescued, the aircraft remained in Greenland for the next 50 years under 268 feet of ice. After being dug out by a team of aviation enthusiasts, the airplane was repaired to flying condition, a process that took 10 years. "Glacier Girl" is now one of the most recognized and award-winning airplanes in the world. The GE Aviation Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of GE Aviation.
