Jon, his parents, and I drove out to Middlesboro to look at a P-38 that had been dug out of a glacier several years ago. I found the story interesting, even if I didn't want to linger for an hour poring over the plane itself and all the artifacts associated with it.
Apparently, back in WWII, a fleet of P-38s were abandoned on a glacier somewhere near Iceland or Greenland because they ran out of fuel. In the subsequent years, they were buried under more than 200 feet of ice!
