Lockheed P-38 Lightning: The Fire Hose.

The night was quite convenient to zeroing this P-38’s weaponry. To achieve this eloquent fire demonstration the .50-cal ammunition belts -no cannon fire here- were generously equipped with tracer projectiles; one in each five it seems. The concentrated firepower in that nose was nearly optimum…. a good well-aimed burst of its 4 .50-cal MGs and 20mm cannon sure could do the trick.

More nightly fireworks.
