1st Fighter Group

The 1st Fighter Group, P-38 Lightning aircraft, were assigned to the 12th Air Force and then the 15th Air Force during World War II.

During some of their time in the Mediterranean Theater of Operations the 1st FG was assigned to the 5th Bomb Wing when they flew low level bombing missions on strategic targets. We have included combat camera unit film footage of the 1st when they were assigned to the 5th BW on our DVD product of the 5th Bomb Wing.
