1998x01 Warbirds - P-38 Lightning

  • 60 mins
  • Documentary

Many pilots say the Lockheed Lightning P-38 was the best fighter plane of World War II -- it was the first fighter to fly at over 400 miles per hour -- and this video gives an up-close look at this remarkable twin-engine war bird, including a ride in a fully restored P-38. As a bonus, find out what prompted teenage boys to flirt with death as air aces as we visit Richard Brown, a World War II pilot who actually kept a broken leg a secret so he could keep flying missions.
