    I thought I'd share this photo I took of a P 38 under restoration at Parafield Airport in South Australia. I don't know the details about the aircraft, but seeing this bird is truly amazing! (I've never seen one before!!) I'll make sure that I'll post a picture when it's finally done (could be waiting awhile though).

    Very nice shots! 8) Is that some volunteer organization or some private foundation? If it is a volunteer org, you may want to look into joining.

    Hi guys, This is P38H-5 42-66841 recovered from PNG and brought to the Classic jets fighter museum in Adelaide, South Australia. Unfortunately it's not being restored to flying condition but will make an excellent addition to the museum. Certainly a very rare aircraft to see in Australia. For more info and pics check out the museum's website at http://www.classicjets.com
