"White Lightnin" at the 1994 P-38 National Association Reunion in Houston, Texas. Lefty Gardner is behind the stick doing a high speed pass at Scholes Field in Galveston,Texas. When the '38 made its debut it could outdive and outclimb anything the enemy had to offer. It remained in a class by itself until the end of WWII. Post war surplus airplanes played a significant role in third world military arsenals until the mid 1950s.
