The Forked-Tail Devil

I calibrated the aircraft’s antenna
by Robert G.

I served in the United States Air Force during the Korean War as an airborne radio mechanic on B-29s. There was a squadron of Lockheed P-38s stationed on Okinawa that flew interceptor flights over Korea for the B-29. One of my jobs was to calibrate the antenna, which was visible on the top of the fuselage of most World War II and Korean era aircraft.

I have such great memories of the P-38!
