|Workin' On The Railroad
The Lockheed P-38 Lightning excelled as an air-to-air and ground attack fighter in both the European and Pacific theaters of combat during World War II. Its long-range capability and convincing firepower concentrated in its nose made the Lightning a formidable combatant regardless of the mission. In this Aerocature, an Eighth Air Force P-38 brings the war to an Axis locomotive in Europe.

The Search and Rescue mission of the US Coast Guard was established in the mid-1930s. Since then, hundreds of souls owe their lives to the Coast Guard's fleet of guardian angels. In the 1980s, the Coast Guard flew a variety of fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, as shown in this Aerocature. From left to right, the helicopters are the Sikorsky HH-3F Pelican and HH-52A Seaguard, accompanied by the Aerospatiale HH-65A Dolphin. The swept-wing Dassault HU-25 Guardian hustles at left, while the Lockheed HC-130H Hercules patrols overhead on the right.

anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?),
and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your
order for the Aerocatures Calendar now!
