Lockheed P-38F Lightning
@Westpac Restoration, Colorado Springs, CO
Westpac Resorations is very close to adding another P-38 to the short list of flyable examples in the world. This aircraft was scrapped in New Guinea in 1944 after a nosewheel collapse, then buried in a pit after the war. Recovered in 1999, the wreckage ended up here at Westpac where the most comprehensive P-38 restoration ever done is being undertaken, and will be one of only two flying P-38s with working turbochargers. This aircraft is restored to its original 475th Fighter Group wartime markings. Nikon D500 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture.
