Miss Velma - nearly there



After travelling from the USA across the Atlantic via Greenland, Iceland and Scotland, TF-51 Miss Velma with Ed Shipley at the controls covers the last few miles to Duxford. Ed was kind enough to overfly my house on the last leg...

This was the culmination of the Operation Bolero II - the attempt to bring the P-38 Glacier Girl to the UK finally after her years under the ice and snow in Greenland. Miss Velma managed to finish the trip alone after GG suffered radiator problems as she set off on the first over water leg to Greenland.
So she remains behind, to hopefully make the historic journey next year - Op Bolero III?
