Friday pictures: Lockheed P-38 Lightning

This post is more hurried than most, which is not fair, as the Lightning is a terrific plane, designed by Kelly Johnson, and deserves a slew of hyperlinks and background (I love the invasion stripes, for example). For the moment, I am going to have to let this picture speak for itself. Taken by  Mark Von Raesfeld, a familiar name around here, it is a natural follow up to last week’s shot of a Vought Corsair. (Mark’s work recently brought us a portrait of an F-86 and a MiG-15.)
