Re: LIGHTNING STRIKES: THE LOCKHEED P-38

Yes Ed

I felt I had to
I have tried to contact Jay Slater via PM and Fonthill media off the side, but no answer.

I feel all of us, who's been waiting, need an answer. Not least the author who also had not received any answer when I last was in contact with him.

Cheers
Stig
