"Any girl who has flown at all grows used to the prejudice of most men pilots who will trot out any number of reasons why women can't possibly be good pilots. . . . The only way to show the disbelievers, the snickering hangar pilots, is to show them."  - Cornelia Fort, WAFS

SR71 Blackbird

P-38F-1, SN #41-7630.  - This is one of six P-38s & two B-17 bombers that were part of the "Lost Squadron" that was forced by weather to land on a remote glacier in Greenland 15/Jul/1942.  It was recovered 50 years later in July 1992 and transported to my hometown of Middlesboro, KY where it was restored.  Ten years and $3+ million later, it flew again on 26/Oct/2002.

Lightning (Glacier Girl) Glacier Girl is a Lockheed Lightning World War II fighter plane that was restored to flying condition after being buried beneath the ice of the remote Greenland Ice Sheet for over 50 years.


Rare photos of the Blackbird ,look closely and you will see a supersonic drone siting on its back ,waiting to be deployed into enemy skies. Where were you in sixty two! Timothy B.
