P-38 "Tangerine" has experienced 'severe engine issues' on its way to Duluth. I'm guessing she lost an engine in the transit, so this may halt the P-38's tour for this year.


Well crap. It was supposed to be here in Battle Creek for our air show over the Fourth of July weekend. I don't think I've seen a P-38 fly in 20 years.

The Planes of Fame P-38 is covering at least some of the scheduled appearances by the Erickson P-38, including Battle Creek.

I think Warbird Kid is referring to the rumored sale of Yankee Lady... I'm perplexed at the crazy airshow arrangements of recent, the parting of the flagship B-17, renaming, the scrapping of the Argosy and whatnot... it just doesn't make sense to me and seems like the museum has lost their charm and their way...
