Coun­ter­feit Light­ning

Flight Journal - - AIRDROP -

A let­ter in your Oc­to­ber 2018 is­sue talked about a P-38 fir­ing on a flight of fight­ers and bombers. Your com­ment asked for more info. Martin Caidin men­tions an in­ci­dent such as this at length in his book Fly­ing Forts. If I re­call cor­rectly, a YB-17 was out­fit­ted as a kind of “Q ship” and ended up shoot­ing the P-38 down.
