About the P-38 LIGHTNING® (D-Day Edition) - WWII Fighter Aircraft:

The P-38 LIGHTNING®, nicknamed the “Fork-Tailed Devil” by the Germans, was developed from 1941-1945 as an American piston-engine fighter aircraft. The LIGHTNING® is most famous for the air battles over the Pacific. An estimated 10,038 of the P-38 LIGHTNING® were produced during WWII. The twin-boom design was a major change from most military-minded aircraft in the skies at the time, making the LIGHTNING® very unique.
