Flight of the XP-38

83 years ago First Lt Benjamin Kelsey of the United States Army Air Corps took off in an experimental army plane from March Field in Riverside California on what would be a very exciting trip that marked the debut of one of the iconic aircraft of the Second World War. There was only ever one Lockheed XP-38, but it would alter the face of aircraft design, and the course of the Second World War.
