Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, CA presents Fork-Tailed Devil on Saturday, April 6.  Another installment of their monthly Living History Flying Days, this event showcases the Lockheed P-38 Lightning.  Its fierce reputation earned it the nickname Fork-Tailed Devil (der Gabelschwanz-Teufel) by the Germans during World War II.

 

Retired Lieutenant Colonel Don Oldis will be the guest of honor.  Don has a storied history with the USAF that spans several decades, from World War II to Vietnam.  Among the many aircraft he flew are the P-38, P-51 and P-39.  His talk will be followed by a question and answer session and flight demonstration of the P-38.

 

The talks will begin at 10 am.  Kevin Thompson and Edward Maloney (Museum founder and curator) will participate.

 

Open to the public.
