FORKED TAILED DEVIL:
What was it like to fly into combat riding a cutting edge fighter that was still a little beyond the then unknown phenomenon of compressibility stall which could hitch a ride at any moment without warning due to the exceptionally clean lines of the P-38? Making it fast and deadly.
In combat the P-38 was a good plane for the vast expanse of the Pacific war and with 2 engines it gave a little more confidence to a young pilot over that Great Big Blue pond. A nose full of hurt and enough fuel to go the distance which it did on many occasions.
I propose a group build of a most distinguished fighter in the service of the USAAF during WWII.
