For almost 70 years, a World War II Boeing B-17E Flying Fortress lay intact in the Agaiambo swamp in Papua New Guinea, crash-landed by its crew after being damaged by Japanese fighters. Now the Swamp Ghost is coming back to life. Restoration manager Jim Martinelli will give a behind-the-scenes look at its restoration since coming to Ford Island in 2013. The afternoon kicks off with a presentation by Martinelli along with curator/author Burl Burlingame on the Battle of Midway.
2–4 p.m., June 7, Free with museum admission, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, pacificaviationmuseum.org.
