Glacier Girl
On July 15, 1942, a flight of six P-38s and two B-17 bombers, with a total of 25 crew members on board, took off from Presque Isle Air Base in Maine headed for the U.K.  What followed was a harrowing and life-threatening landing of the entire squadron on a remote ice cap in Greenland. (See photo of downed P-38 from the "Lost Squadron.")  Miraculously, none of the crew was lost and they were all rescued and returned safely home after spending several days on the desolate ice.

 


P-38 Lightning -
Before Glacier Girl, Lefty Gardner's "White Lightnin'" was arguably the most famous flyable P-38 in America. People would make a point to attend vintage air shows just so they could see her.Sadly, on June 25, 2001, lightnin' struck the earth...and this time the lightnin' was white and the damage was bad.This section of our website is dedicated to Lifetime Association Member, Marvin L. "Lefty" Gardner and his beautiful plane, "White Lightnin'," (P-38L-5, SN #44-53254) who we all hope will one day fly again.

And she did.
