‘Long way from home’
The P38 (Lightning) fighter saw service in European and Pacific WW2 theatres. The aircraft first flew in 1939 and was in continuous production at Lockheed until 1945 with close on 10,000 examples of the various Mks issued to US Forces. An unmistakable profile with the twin engine, twin tail set up resulting in an elegant aircraft.
This image is of an aircraft from 475th FG which operated in the New Guinea/Philippines area in the latter part of the war. It was particularly suited to the vast areas patrolled in the Pacific due to the twin engine profile and large fuel capacity
