Upcoming Events at The Aviation Museum of Kentucky
Glacier Girl - The P-38E Lightning


Mark you calendar for Saturday December 7th at 6PM

On 15 July 1942, due to poor weather and limited visibility, Glacier Girl's squadron was forced to make an emergency landing in Greenland en route to the British Isles during Operation Bolero. All crew members were subsequently rescued. However, Glacier Girl, along with the unit's five other P-38 fighters and two B-17 bombers, was eventually buried beneath 260 feet of ice due to decades of blowing snow and drifting glaciers. Fifty years later, in 1992, the plane was brought to the surface by members of the Greenland Expedition Society after years of searching and excavation. The aircraft was eventually transported to Middlesboro, Kentucky, where it was restored to flying condition.

Come to a special program on Saturday, December 7th at 6PM

Now is your chance to hear the story behind this aircraft as the Museum welcomes Bob Cardin who was one of its rescuers and restorers. He will tell the amazing story of this truly unique aircraft.

This will also be the Annual meeting of the Aviation Museum and is open to all. The cost of the program and dinner is $15 for members and $20 for all others (or as we like to think of you, future members).

Due to demand, we have extened the deadline for tickets one day to December 5th
