Great photo! Thanks!
A number of US aerial photographic services flew P-38s (modified F-5 versions) such as Hycon, Kucera, etc. under contract from the USGS/US Army Map Service in the mid-50s to start out one of the most successful U.S. sponsored and funded foreign aid programs: to map large sections from Mexico all the way to Argentina and Chile which so far had no reliable maps. And not onLy that, in 1956 several of these airctaft were ordered to take pictures of the receding glaciers of the highest mountains and volcanoes in the same countries. Yes, the USGS knew about it 60+ YEARS AGO.

Unusual angle of a classic I always associate with Kelly Johnson's remarkable ingenuity. Great shot, thanks.
Beautiful picture. Thanks to chalet, Inow know much more about the P38 and its usefulness. Thanks for the history.

Very iconic fighter. USA's WWII highest scoring ace (Richard Bong) flew this.
Always my favorite

In my opinion, the Lightning shares the title of "most handsome plane" with the Clipper and the B747 !!
Jim Herring
Great Picture! Wondering about the smoke.

With the smokers on...clean-up in aisle P-38.

This aircraft seems to have just the stock Allison engines, no turbo-superchargers or were the visible ones a second stage? My father's MS engineering project was to turn a P-38 turbo-supercharger into a gas turbine. It worked. They fueled it with propane, though had to turn the tank upside-down to get a workable fuel density. While the thing was running, he looked up and saw heads poking out from behind the multiple columns at Navy Pier, in Chicago, where he was attending college in 1946.
