    A Super Lightning?

    During World War II, the Lockheed developed a long-range version of its famous fighter P-38 Lightning, however, due to technical problems the project was canceled. The link below provides a collection of interesting photos of the plane and a question: If the plane had entered service, have reached the success of the P-38? What do you think? Visit the link, see the photos and answer this question through a poll at the end of the post.

    It looks very similar to the P-61, which did reach production and was deployed into active USAAF service(albeit not for very long).

    I think a more interesting question is whether the F-82 Twin Mustang would have eventually outnumbered the Black Widows, had the first jet fighters not become operational for another 10 years
