The Lockheed® P-38 Lightning served the US Army in World War II. Recognizable by its distinctive twin boom/central nacelle design, the P-38 was nicknamed the ‘fork-tailed devil’ by axis pilots. Used both as a long-range fighter and fighter/bomber, the P-38 was instrumental in many important WWII missions.
Is a family of single-seat, single-engine, fifth generation multirole fighters that are designed to perform ground attack, reconnaissance, and air defense missions with stealth capability. The F-35 has three main models; the F-35A employs conventional takeoff and landing, the F-35B will be used for short take-off and vertical-landings, and the F-35C will be carrier-based.
