The Lockheed P-38 Glacier Girl, has become one of the world’s most well-known warbirds since its rescue from the Greenland ice cap in 1992.

The Glacier Girl project began in 1981 when Pat Epps and Richard Taylor organized the initial Greenland Expedition Society. It finally gained success 11 years later, when the late Roy Shoffner was a major contributor to the project. The 13th rescue effort included digging through 268 feet of ice and pulling the airplane piece-by-piece to the surface, reclaiming the only survivor of the six P-38s and two B-17s abandoned during a 1942 trans-Atlantic ferry flight.
