P-38: Fun In the Sun!

Good day IFC! Hope everyone is well during these increasingly tough times…

I come today bearing my VERY FIRST #screenshots-and-videos topic! The two other attendees were @Butter_Boi and @USA_ATC who can I just say are fantastic pilots! Never expected to get these shots today! These photos were taken at LPFR today around the time the awesome @Joseph_Spinner was controlling! Feel free to give some Feedback!

Hell of an aircraft to pilot. Hand-flying with no A/P for 30 mins really gets your arms aching! Thanks for the kind words!

Other than my horrendous takeoff that we shall not speak of, that was a great flight — I love hand-flying so much! Thanks for mentioning me, great photos!

Haha thank you. That takeoff is between you, me, Blake and Joseph_Spinner ;) Definitely an awesome way of flying. Gotta have steady arms!

Hand flying only is the main reason I love the P-38.
