The P-38J Pudgy aircraft was flown by Thomas McGuire and won 38 victories, second to the lightning called “Marge”. The aircraft was developed for the United States Army Air Corps to be one of the American fighter aircrafts during the Second World War.

The P-38J Pudgy was designed by Clarence “Kelly” Johnson in response to the Army specification for an aircraft that can reach 20,000 feet in 6 minutes. The P38 had its unique twin booms with forward-mounted engines. It was the only American fighter with twin booms during World War II. It was most used for bombing and reconnaissance missions and in theaters of war such as the Pacific Theater and the China-Burma-India Operations.

The P-38 is said to be one of the best American fighter planes of the Second World War.
