P-38 captured!
I share with you some rare pictures (in color and w/b) of fighters Lockheed P-38 Lightnings captured and with German and Italian markings during World War II. Does anyone know how many were captured and how they came to Europe once they have been used in the Pacific? To view the photos visit the link below:

Best Regards.

Re: P-38 captured!
Fascinating link to obscure photos!

Captured "enemy" aircraft were highly sought, especially flyable examples to better learn their flying characteristics and weaknesses. Most accounts and photos are of the "Allies" spoils, making these pics of Lightnings in German colors fairly unique!
