Lockheed P-38J Lightning “23 Skidoo”
@Half Moon Bay Airport, CA
This year’s Pacific Coast Dream Machines show was fortunate to have a P-38 in attendance. “23 Skidoo” is the Lightning owned by the Planes of Fame Museum and operates out of Chino, CA. This aircraft never saw any combat before being surplused and changing hands until being restored to flying condition in 1988. The P-38 wears the markings of “23 Skidoo”, flown by Captain Perry J. “Pee Wee” Dahl of the 432th Fighter Squadron, 475th Fighter Group. Nikon D300 w/18-200mm, processing with Photomatix and Aperture.
