|Lightning Strikes More Than Twice
The nose of this P-38 Lightning seems to be on fire as shells spew from its rack of four .50-caliber machine guns. This was the sight many an axis pilot saw in his rear-view mirror as the Lightning zeroed in for the kill. This picture epitomizes the term "guns blazing." From the Webmaster's collection.
