    The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was a WWII American fighter aircraft. A very versatile aircraft, the Lightning was used for dive bombing, ground strafing and photo reconnaissance missions.
    The P-38 was the only American fighter aircraft in active production throughout ww2, from Pearl Harbor to VJ Day.

    I highly encourage everyone to get involved with the PGR. Active, Retired, Reserve, and civilians with or without a motorcycle. It's free, voluntary, and you select when and where you would like to attend any functions. All that is required is to have a heart.
