The P-38 Lightning was a World War II American fighter aircraft built by Lockheed. Developed to a United States Army Air Corps requirement, the P-38 had distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle containing the cockpit and armament. The P-38 was used most successfully in the Pacific Theater of Operations and the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations as the mount of America's top aces, Richard Bong (40 victories) and Thomas McGuire (38 victories). The P-38 was the only American fighter aircraft in production throughout American involvement in the war, from Pearl Harbor to Victory over Japan Day.
During his career Thomas McGuire was assigned five P-38's, nicknamed “Pudgy” after his wife, all of which had squadron number 131 on the nose. McGuire scored 38 victories, second only to Maj. Richard Bong. This model carries the art from the 4th of his 5 P-38s.
