Chino’s Fork-Tailed Devil

While the P-51 Mustang receives well deserved accolades, the P-38 Lightning is often overlooked as arguably the most advanced and capable fighter of its era. This amazing predator was piloted by America’s two top scoring aces, shot down Yamamoto in the Pacific, and earned the moniker “Fork -Tailed Devil”from its German adversaries in Europe. Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, California, maintains the legacy of the Fork-Tailed Devil and those who flew it into combat through their “Living History Day” series, and their beautiful 23 Skidoo.
