Lockheed P-38J Lightning
by Roy Richard
The 1st Fighter Group is the oldest and one of the most famous fighter groups in the USAF.
During WWII the Group, consisting of the 27th, 71st and 94th Fighter Squadrons, flew the P-38 Lockheed Lighting fighter in campaigns in Europe and North Africa.
At the time the 1st Fighter Group was part of the 15th Air Force and all of their aircraft had red spinners. Aircraft assigned to the 8th Air Force had their spinners painted yellow. Very little weathering was applied since the Groupís P-38Js were almost brand new at this time.
