Some trivia about this P-38...
This P-38 was built towards the end of WWII and never saw combat. It was used for training during the last year of the war, then
There are only about 6 Lightnings that are in flyable condition, with the Skidoo being the most recent Lightning to be restored, in 1988.
The Skidoo is estimated to be worth 14 million dollars.
Glacier Girl was restored more recently, taking flight in 2007.
EDIT: I just saw you likely got that information off the Planes of Fame site: http://planesoffame.org ...P-38J&cntnt01returnid=128 I sent them an email asking them to correct that information. I assume it was written before Glacier Girl flew.
