About Us

Our Mission

The P‑38 National Association is a non-profit, veteran's 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.

Our Members

We have had thousands of people join us over the years, many 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.

Our membership roster includes P‑38 pilots (past and present), maintenance personnel, crew chiefs, armorers, cooks, and administrators of any military organization flying or supporting this great aircraft.

This also encompasses WASPs, technical representatives, and manufacturing personnel of companies who supported the military or supplied the factories producing and maintaining the P‑38, including Lockheed employees and all those "Rosie the Riveters." 

Many of the members on our rolls are fans who had friends or relatives involved in some way with the P‑38, as well as people who just love this beautiful plane (or WWII aviation history).  These fans have become an important part of carrying on a legacy which began over 70 years ago.

We welcome you all.  Why not join us today to help carry on the Lightning's story. You can get all the details here...and, unlike with some other aviation organizations, the annual dues won't be painful! Oh yeah, we also will never, EVER, sell your name or information to another company or individual.

Non-Profit Status

The P-38 National Association is a non-profit, veteran's organization.  We are a 501(c)(19) tax–exempt organization under the IRS Taxation Code.  All donations made to the P‑38 National Association may be tax-deductible. Check with your Accountant.
