Cool Videos...Like the camera views. I would have liked to hear the sounds of the engines over the cheesy "majestic" music. But good find.

Cool video. Too bad she's not flying now, due to the crash she suffered.

Note how Lefty retracted the gear before rotation! Pretty ballsy stuff, there...

Ironic posts, it appears that Red Bull's "Flying Bulls" purchased Silver Lightning after the accident, and are now restoring it to airworthy status themselves to house it in Hangar 7. That's pretty awesome, they're a definite way to keep aircraft flying well into this century due to their obvious financial situation. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

If you asked me, I'd say that it's almost a crime what they did to that poor P-38 (not the crash, the modifications). Still, it's a lot better than letting it get chopped up like the rest. Now that was a truly hideous thing to do, cutting up all of those beautiful Lightnings.

Well, even though the brand new fighters that were sold as government surplus immediately after the war went for as little as $5000, that was quite a bit more than most people made in a year in those days.

Hell, I just got my social security statement that tells you how much you made each year of your life so far, and when I checked my first year of fulltime work, I made less than $3200 for all of 1973 (and I thought I was doing great...). With inflation, that's a whole lot less than half that in 1945 dollars.

Once I get my time machine up and running, though, I'll 'discover' a cache of twenty or thirty rare warbirds mothballed on the Arizona ranch I plan to bequeathe myself...

cheers

You have GOT to be kidding us!!! You do realize that your $3200 Annual works out to be $1.53 per hour, assuming you had a full time job?? ...Actually, you DID say you had a Fulltime Job!!!!
That's very hard to believe, even back in 1973.

What the Heck were you doing???!!!!???
