Tony Weddel. The Rufe was born out of the Japanese Navy's need for a single-seat fighter that could be used primarily from military installations on small Pacific Islands, where it was impossible to build landing fields. Except for the addition of floats and some minor structural changes, it was almost identical to the Zero in design and performance. Here, Rufes defend Japanese shipping from American B-25s and P-38s during the Aleutian campaign. 23"x 19" print.

Research Notes:
The twin-engine P-38 Lightning, a radical design conceived by Lockheed design genius Clarence "Kelly" Johnson in the late 1930s, became one of the war's most successful fighter planes, serving in Europe and the Pacific. About 10,000 of the planes were built, and about 32 complete or partial airframes are believed to still exist, perhaps 10 in operational condition.

                      I am looking for information on any article that you may know about, related to the
                      P38 Lightning used for Photo Recon. in Europe?

                      My home town is Redstone, Montana and during WWII  we had a pilot from
                      there that flew the P38 Lightning on these missions.  An article was written
                      by a major publication ( Life, Look ?? ) on this pilot, a Major George Owens.

                      I was only 7 or 8 years old at the time, but I remember a day in school when
                      this pilot was ferrying a P38 Lightning across country and he buzzed Redstone
                      and our schoolhouse.

                      My older brother reminded me of this happening and wanted to know if I could
                      get a copy of this article somehow?

                      Your website came up on my first search effort so I want to see if you could
                      direct me as to where to look?

                      Thank you in advance for your help in this area and for the information I have
                      already found related to the fabulous P38 Lightning aircraft.
