P-38H - 5 - LO S/N 42 - 66947
After mailing the model and serial number for the P-38 pictured above to the Air Force Historical Research Agency - Maxwell AFB, I found this aircraft was assigned to the 329th Fighter Group - 330th Fighter Squadron which used P-38s to train replacement pilots and provided cadres for fighter groups. The Aircraft Records Card stated the aircraft was received 07-20-43 / Burbank, California and the cost of the aircraft was ($98,990.00). This P-38 was used for training and was later scrapped.
Attu Island, Alaska
The following photos were sent to me by Jerry. These pictures were taken by his Father-In-Law, PFC Charles E. Hare - 713th Signal (AW) Company during WWII. He was stationed on Attu Island with the Army Air Corp. from August 13, 1943 to October 19, 1945.
