When Lightning Struck: Saga of an American Warplane
This program tells the story of the brave flying aces who flew and fought from the P-38 Lightning, the fastest and fiercest war bird of World War II. When Lightning Struck: Saga of an American Warplane interviews some of the leading flying aces of World War II, ground crew members and current P-38 owners. Through vintage film and anecdotes, like that of Charles O'Sullivan, who was shot down in New Guinea and taken captive by a blood-drinking tribe, the program tells the remarkable history of the plane the Nazis called "the forked- tailed devil."
