2021 Wings Over Camarillo,

@ Camarillo, CA

August 2021

The 2021 Wings Over Camarillo Airshow was fortunate to have a P-38 in attendance courtesy of the Planes of Fame, seen here with Jeff Fahey at the controls during this photo pass.  “23 Skidoo” is the Lightning owned by the Planes of Fame Museum and operates out of Chino, CA.  This aircraft never saw any combat before being surplused and changing hands until being restored to flying condition in 1988.  The P-38 wears the markings of “23 Skidoo”, flown by Captain Perry J. “Pee Wee” Dahl of the 432th Fighter Squadron, 475th Fighter Group.  Nikon D500 w/Tamron 150-600mm.
