    I would love to go, but it's not in the budget this year. Get some great pics. The most I have seen together is 3, so this will be a nice treat.

    I saw three at the Planes of Fame Airshow in 2009.

    Wish I could make this one.

    Okay, so there were four P-38s at this airshow. A fifth was scheduled to attend but had mechanical problems on the way there. Plans for a sixth fell through. Anyway, no complaints here! They got all four of them up in the air together, and what a treat that was. There was also a Heritage Flight with an F-22 and two of the P-38s. On their last pass, the P-38 on either side split away while the Raptor continued flying straight ahead. When they had plenty of separation, all three planes barrel rolled simultaneously. It was truly spectacular! Hope you like my pics...

    Thanks guys! Mudpuppy mentioned the nose art on "Honey Bunny," and I must say it and the nose art on "Thoughts of Midnite" are stunning. As you can tell from the pic, "Thoughts of Midnite" was painted directly onto the plane. The artist is Greg Hildebrandt, a longtime fantasy artist.

    Thanks for the close-ups of the ladies! :)
    Man, the P-38 is in a class all of its own!
