After the successful release of the XP-38 (for FS2002, released Dec 2002), Project XP-38N is now pleased to announce "P-38 Triple Play" -- a freeware package that includes three historical 'early Lightnings' for virtual aviators. The package is vailable for FS2002 and CFS2 from the AVSIM file library. The Planes- P-38F-1-LO "Glacier Girl" (originally part of operation BOLERO, recovered from Greenland and recently restored to flying condition)- P-38G-13-LO "Miss Virginia" (the plane Lt. Rex Barber (347th FG) flew on the famous "Yamamoto Mission")- P-38H-5-LO tail number 267027 (Lt.
