Historian Dick Campbell presents....The Lost Squadron and the Resurrection of the P-38 'Glacier Girl'

In July 1942, a WWII flight took off from Goose Bay, Labrador headed for England.  What followed was a harrowing and life-threatening landing of the entire squadron on a remote ice cap in southeast Greenland. None of the crew was lost: they were all rescued and their brand new airplanes were left on the ice cap, undisturbed for the next fifty years!  An expedition rescued one of the planes in 1992. Follow along as this compelling modern adventure story unfolds.

Join us for a light lunch catered by a local vendor. Please register for this event.
