This video is part of a series that presents the history of some the finest airplanes in the United States military arsenal. The program includes a tour of each plane, personal recollections by the personnel who served on board the aircraft, and exciting archival film footage of flight missions. This volume looks at the plane that defeated the German Luftwaffe. The light weight and small size of the P-38 gave it exceptional speed and maneuverability. Inside, pilots with nerves of steel steered their crafts into dogfights to the death with the enemy.
