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.
