What kind of person did it take to fly one of the most unique fighters of the war into the hotbeds of combat? The Lockheed P-38 Lightning Fighter was one of America's most important contributions to the Allied victory of World War II. It was the first U.S. fighter that seriously challenged the German Messerschmitt 109. It was also he first Allied fighter capable of wrestling control of the air from Mitsubishi's vaunted A6m Zero. Well over 3,000 Axis aircraft were credited as shot down by Lightnings; the P-38 became the symbol of ultimate victory over Japan. 250 photos.
