Hear Incredible Story of Glacier Girl at Wright Brothers Banquet
November 29, 2011 – The amazing story of Glacier Girl, the P-38E Lightning rescued from beneath more than 250 feet of ice in Greenland and restored to pristine condition, comes to life December 16 when Bob Cardin appears at the annual Wright Brothers Memorial Banquet held at the EAA AirVenture Museum’s Founders’ Wing in Oshkosh.
Cardin led a 10-year restoration effort of the graceful Lockheed fighter, which has appeared at AirVenture several times. By bringing this rare fighter back to life, Cardin and his team exhibited the true “keep ’em flying” motto exhibited by warbird owners and restorers everywhere. Hearing the in-depth, first-person accounts of how Glacier Girl was brought back to life will make this a special evening.
Tickets to the banquet are $45 for EAA members and $50 for non-members, and can be reserved online or by calling 920-426-6880.
