HOME PAGE

They called her the Lightning! She was a fast, powerful, twin-tailed beauty that helped turn the tide of World War II in Europe, while protecting America's shores. The Lockheed company built over 9,000 of the P-38 fighters at its Burbank, California plant during the war years.

The mostly female work force at Burbank worked around the clock to produce enough P-38s for the Army and Air Force. In Stan Vosburg's new print, we see two "Rosie Riviters", Vi and Selma, as they unpack for an afternoon at the beach. Having finished their shift at the ball turret factory at Anaheim, they have traveled to Corona del Mar. Their kids can now unwind and play in the low tide shallows.

Military aircraft flying overhead were a common sight, but it was always exciting to see and hear the big birds up close in a low flyby. The finishing touch to a sand castle is a worthy work of art, but for one of the twins, the approach and roar of the P-38s' two supercharged Allison engines is enough to send him leaping in ecstasy. His brother contemplates the opportune time to destroy his cousin's masterpiece, while his pal turns to see the errant twin greeting the Lightnings hurtling through the air!
