Description

The history of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning is not limited only to its operation in World War II in the European and Pacific theaters. The 6th Army Air Force had the mission of protecting the Panama Canal zone from the threat of submarines and corsairs of the Axis and the Lightning were at the time the backbone of the United States to protect this strategic area that connects the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.

Dan Hagedorn describes the operation of the various fighter and reconnaissance groups of the 6th Army Air Force equipped with this versatile fighter aircraft. But he extends his research work beyond the end of the world conflict and penetrates the history of Lightning in Latin American countries, from their air forces and combats in which they participated, to the companies that operated it, in aerial photogrammetric tasks. Thus, the Lightning enthusiast will be able to trace the operation of these aircraft in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, El Salvador, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

This illustrated publication helps to fill the gap in the history of these famous aircraft of the Second World War in the Latin American context.
