This is a repaint of the Flight Simulations Design (FSD) Lockheed P-38 Lightning to represent P-38J-10-LO 42-67825 'Texas Ranger IV' flown by 55th FG CO Col. Jack Jenkins. On April 10th 1944 Col. Jenkins was shot down in this aircraft on the Group's first 'Droop-Snoot' bombing raid on Coulmniers airfield in Northen France. Having dived from 20,000 feet for a low-level strafing run, a fogged-up windscreen spoilt his aim. Alerted AAA gunners brought him down on his second pass. He survived as a POW. By Dave Quincey.
