A Living History Event at the Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, California, will feature two Skunk Works veterans, who will focus on the P-38 Lighning.
The Saturday, Feb. 5. presentation, which begins at 10 a.m., will feature Pete Law, who was hired right out of college and worked 40 years for the Lockheed Skunk Works as a thermodynamics engineer working on the SR-71 and U-2 through the F-35 in Burbank and Palmdale; and Joe Szep, the last member of the original Skunk Works team. He was a designer of the P-38, P-80 Shooting Star, and the Constellation. He is a recipient of the Reno Air Racing Foundation’s Aviation Pathfinder Award.
A discussion panel of aviation experts will be followed by a question & answer period and demonstration flight of the P-38 Lightning. Museum members get in free and are entered into a raffle for a flight in the L-19 Birddog following the presentation.
