Just caught the last 30 seconds of this on PBS.....featuring the P-38.

It was produced in 2000, so it is fairly recent.

I hope they replay it........

Tells the story of the brave flying aces who flew and fought from the P-38 Lightning, the fastest and fiercest war bird of World War II. The program presents interviews with some of the leading World War II flying aces, ground crew members and current P-38 owners. Through vintage film and anecdotes, the program recounts the remarkable history of the plane the Nazis called 'the forked-tailed devil.' The program also reports on the progress of the restoration of Glacier Girl, the P-38 excavated from beneath 268 feet of Greenland ice and featured in the program.
