The P‑38 National Association is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to preserve and perpetuate the memory of this classic WWII aircraft, the P‑38 "Lockheed Lightning," and those who designed, built, maintained and flew it. Future generations should know about this amazing airplane and the difference it made in helping to win World War II.
We have well over 1900 records of persons with hands-on experience with this state-of-the-art aircraft, and our membership continues to grow as more and more fans find out about us.
Members include pilots, maintenance personnel, crew chiefs, armorers, cooks, and administrators of any military organization flying or supporting this great aircraft. This also encompasses WASP personnel technical representatives and manufacturing personnel of companies who supported the military or supplied the factories producing and maintaining the P‑38.
Our membership also includes fans who had relatives involved with the manufacture or use of the planes as well as those who are enthusiasts of the P‑38 (or WWII aviation history). These fans have become an important part in carrying on the legacy begun over 70 years ago.
If you just love the Lightning, why not join us today. You can get all the details here...and, unlike with some other aviation organizations, the annual dues won't be painful!
