These are pictures of a P-38 that was recovery from Greenland and was under 268 feet of ice. The reason I have pictures is that a man from the area where Rose and I grew up financed the recovery and rebuilding of the plane so every time I was down to visit my brothers I would go to see how much progress they had made in rebuilding it. It took several years to rebuild it so I got to see it many times. The sad part is that it was sold to a group in Texas after the owner died. The story of it's recovery and rebuilding has been on the History Channel several times. If you want to read more about it click here.
