    I'm looking for a P38J sparepart manual since we are going to dig at a P38 crashplace. We've just found a few parts, but nothing special.
    It's the P38J of 2nd Lt Quentin A. Teige, KIA 24/05/44
    S/N.: 43-28261, was at 306th Fighter Wing/14th FG/49th Sqd and was shoot down by a Messerschmit Me110.
    Maybe somebody knows that plane or the pilot and has pictures?
    Thanks for any help.

    The only place I know of where to get a parts manual for a P-38 is here.

    Lockheed P38 Series

    Hope it helps Micdrow

    Lt Teige was my father, anything you may come across would be VERY much appreciated! I have copies of the mission report, and a picture of members of the 49th taken in Apr. 1944.
    He was born in 1918, enlisted in the Army in 1939, finished P38 Flight Training in Aug. 1943 and is now buried in our home town of Marinette WI. Even has a P38 carved on his headstone. I last saw him 1n fall of 1943, but was rather young so my memories are really from my mother and grandparents.
    I can send whatever I have available but would be especially grateful for anything you may find out at the crash site. We have been in the Friedburg, AU area a few times but never located the actual location.
