Airborne 09.05.18: P-38 Ice Recovery, Corvair-Powered JAG-2 Twin, Astro Resigns

The Greenland glacier that is the final resting place for six P-38 fighters and two B-17 bombers may soon give up another of the aircraft that has been buried in the ice since 1942.

The aircraft were forced to land on a remote glacier off Koge bak in Southeastern Greenland when they ran into weather en route to Reykjavik, Iceland where they planned to refuel. The aircrews were all rescued, but the airplanes remained on the glacier, and were eventually buried in up to 350 feet of ice and snow. One of the P-38s, "Glacier Girl", was discovered in 1992 and restored to airworthy condition. Now, a second P-38, dubbed "Echo" and flown by Robert Wilson, has been located, and a recovery effort is planned. A twin-engine airplane powered by Corvair engines has flown for the first time, and it is thought to be the first such airplane to fly in the 58 years Corvair engines have been used to power airplanes. The website reports that the plane, called a Jag-2, was flown by its builder for the first time last week. One of the candidates selected for the NASA's 2017 astronaut class has resigned from the program for "personal reasons" before qualifying for spaceflight. Robb Kulin, a 35-year-old Alaskan, has been in training with NASA for a year. He was selected for one of the 12 spots in the astronaut class from among some 18,300 applicants for the positions. With his resignation, he becomes the first astronaut candidate to leave the program in 50 years, according to the agency. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
