Production. Lockheed P-38 pursuit planes. Another new Lockheed P-38 pursuit ship leaves the main assembly line of a large Western aircraft plant. The station stand has been swept clear and the ship is being lowered away to rest on its own wheels. From here it will be rolled to a test field where propellers will be installed. If trial flights and final inspections prove it satisfactory, the ship will be delivered to the Army
