The P-38 Lightning by Lockheed might be one of the most impressive aircrafts in the world of aviation. With its unconventional twin tail, it was commonly used during the Pacific War. The twin Allison engines with 1475 horsepower make the P-38 the perfect warbird for long distances due to its ability to fly higher and faster than most aircraft built around the same time. Between 1941 and 1945 more than 10,000 aircraft were produced. Today, the P-38 is a very rare model. The only P-38 in Europe, and one of the only ones that is still being displayed. She’s owned by the Flying Bulls and can be found in Hangar 7 in Salzburg, Austria.
