Valle Exhibits

We've held several annual meetings at the Planes of Fame location in Valle, AZ. One of our great joys as an organization was to build several P-38 exhibits for their museum.

Bob Alvis, Howard Ramshorn and Bob and all the support personnel who helped to build and continue to maintain the exhibits at Valle.

Lt. Estill Exhibit


One of the exhibits built by the P-38 Association is dedicated to 1Lt Shannon E. Estill who was shot down in what was then East Germany only weeks before the end of the war on Friday April 13, 1945.
