Production. Lockheed P-38 pursuit planes. New Lockheed P-38 pursuit ships that have successfully passed inspection for routine test flights are transferred to the Lockheed air terminal. Here flight mechanics take over and prepare them for the flight test. These ships have performed beautifully in action, notably in the Aleutians. They are excellent high-altitude fighters and rank among the world's fastest combat aircraft. Their long-range and great firepower give promise of their value as escorts for high- altitude bombers
