  2. angel collins 26 Dec 2016 Reply

    Is that thing powerful in any way?

  3. Eric Poe 27 Dec 2016 Reply

    +Randall Rader​ yes, though technically its the F-5B-1-LO reconnaissance variant, converted from former P-38 Lightnings. Not to be confused with the F-5 fighter jet however, obviously.

    So it's a post WW2/Korean war variant . . .

  5. Eric Poe 27 Dec 2016 Reply

    Meh… Sorta. The F-4 & F-5 (Both share the P-38 airframe) were developed in 1941. Technically the f5b was purpose built from the factory, while f5c & f5d were conversions from former fighters.

    It's interesting that there were 15 "F" designations in that era prior to F meaning fighter. F used to be for "foto" and was exclusively for photographic reconnaissance. The F-9 for example, being based on the B-17 platform.

    I'm learning as I go. Whenever I get an image from +Brent Burzycki​ I try to learn anything I can. I have to admit, some are quite challenging to even identify!

    The P-38, like the one in this picture is the same kind of plane that flew a mission that killed Yamamoto, the Japanese head of naval fleets that designed and executed the attack on Pearl Harbor. The plane was used mostly in the Pacific Theater, but was used some in Europe. It was a very deadly plane and could match most planes in the war. Used as a fighter-bomber. Great plane

    If you want to fly at home I received good advice from pros on Saitek pedals and Saitek Throttle Stick.

    What is that

  25. Clifford Toney 28 Dec 2016 Reply

    +Aziah Springer. Hello. It is a Lockheed P- 38 Lightning twin engine fighter/ bomber from WW2. One of the best aircraft ever made. It could easily outfly and out run the dreaded Japanese A 6M5 Zero fighter. One shot down Yamamoto' s plane near the end of the war.
