Here are some websites that we felt might be of interest to our visitors, who have a special interest in the P‑38 aircraft. If you find any others you think should be added, please let us know!

Each link will open a separate window for you. If you find a broken link, let us know.


If you find any other websites which you think should be here, let us know.

Not a P-38 link, but someone who we know well deserves to be included!

World War II Allied Aircraft Crashes in The Netherlands & North Sea
Jan Nieuwenhuis, from Texel Island, The Netherlands, has put together an extensively researched database of these crashes. It does cover more aircraft than just the P‑38, but the info he has on Lightning crashes alone is worth a visit. You can do a search by aircraft, crewmember or cemetery/memorial. It is an ongoing project, so check back often. (Make sure to click “X” in the box at the bottom to activate the database!)
