    stumbled across the article, while researching some plane pics.

    Apparently written / taken from a Ret. AF light Col., who commanded a P-38 squadron at the close of operations in the JTO.

    Very good read.

    The parent website has some great aviation references, as well.

    That was GREAT. Especially the part about the canopy when he was going to hot dog the takeoff!

    Thanks for the post, Rayra.
