Thank you for your interest in joining the P‑38 National Association. It's the best way possible to guarantee that future generations can learn about our favorite plane and "keep 'em flying" so aviation fans can continue to appreciate the splendor of the Lightning.
Our membership is open to anyone who loves the P-38 and wants to join us in our mission to keep alive the memory of this beautiful airplane.
With your membership dollars you will help support our ongoing efforts to insure the P‑38's place in American aviation history, and to provide continuing information and education about the P‑38 to aviation enthusiasts of all ages throughout the world. This includes our financial support of some key aviation programs, such as scholarships and other appropriate donations.
In addition to the printed membership publication you'll receive three times a year, your annual dues are also used to help support our P‑38 Museum adjacent to March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, CA, as well as exhibits at the Planes of Fame Museum in Valle, AZ.
Your dues also enable us to attend air shows and special events throughout the year to represent the P‑38 community and help "spread the word" about the Lightning. We are an all-volunteer staff.
Lightning Strikes is our membership publication. It is published three times a year and is loaded with great stores and classic photos of P‑38s and P‑38 personnel.
It includes stories not only about the fighter and photo recon pilots, but also great articles about the P‑38 ground crewmen, designers, WASPs and other hands-on personnel like Lockheed plant assembly workers. Of course, you'll also get some fantastic war stories in every issue, and these are getting harder and harder to find these days!
We have several back issues of "Lightning Strikes" available in our store and we'll be adding more as time goes on. Have a look and see what strikes your fancy.
In addition to our offline membership publication, Lightning Strikes, we also have an active Facebook presence. It has become a very popular place for P-38 fans from around the world to post their photos, comments and interesting bits of P‑38 history.
You can visit it here.
There are so many terrific benefits to joining the P‑38 Association, we hope you'll decide to join us today and support the mission.
