Lightning II

The Air Force has named the Joint Strike Fighter – Lightning II after the famous WWII warplane. As a former Blue Suiter and a student of all things related to Aerospace, I am a big fan of the P-38. Designed by the legendary Kelley Johnson and the fighter that America’s highest scoring ace Richard Bong flew, the original Lightning is a hard act to follow.

That said, I think the F-35 will blaze it’s own trail of greatness in aviation history.
