  • When the distinctive twin-boomed P-38 Lightnings arrived in England in 1942, they brought with them for the first time the ability to provide bomber escort all the way to a target. Remarkably maneuverable for a high-speed, twin-engine aircraft, in capable hands it was a match in combat for the Luftwaffe. Its great versatility was demonstrated in the ground attack role; its tasks at the time of the D-Day landing included low-level straffing of enemy positions. This print depicts 20th Fighter Group P-38s climbing out from their base at Kingscliffe, Northamptonshire, at dawn, as they head for the Normandy beaches.
