    The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was a World War II American fighter aircraft with distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle containing the cockpit and armament. Named "fork-tailed devil" by the Luftwaffe and "two planes, one pilot" by the Japanese, the P-38 was used in a number of roles, including dive bombing, level bombing, ground-attack, photo reconnaissance missions, and extensively as a long-range escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks under its wings. The P-40 is best known as the aircraft used by Claire Chennault's American Volunteer Group, "The Flying Tigers". While not an outstanding fighter, it was well used during the first half of the war especially in the Pacific theater. The P-39 performed well as a ground attack aircraft used in the early Southwest Pacific campaigns such as at Guadalcanal.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
