ACADEMY #12208: 1/48 Scale Lockheed P-38F Lightning "Glacier Girl" Plastic Aircraft Model Kit
One P-38 in particular became famous not because of its war epics, but because of how it survived over time. This P-38F was one of six Lightning’s and two B-17’s that were forced to land on a glacier in Greenland due to weather conditions while on a ferry flight to England. Buried under 262 feet of snow & ice, this particular aircraft has been the only one located to date & was recovered and returned to the United States in the early 1990’s. Today, the aircraft dubbed “Glacier Girl” has been carefully restored to flying condition and can be seen at The Lost Squadron Museum at the Bell County Airport in Middleboro, KY.
