May 2016

Westpac Resorations is very close to adding another P-38 to the short list of flyable examples in the world.  This aircraft was scrapped in New Guinea in 1944 after a nosewheel collapse, then buried in a pit after the war.  Recovered in 1999, the wreckage ended up here at Westpac where the most comprehensive P-38 restoration ever done is being undertaken, and will be one of only two flying P-38s with working turbochargers.  This aircraft is restored to its original 475th Fighter Group wartime markings.  Nikon D500 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture and Aurora HDR.
