One of the P-38's flown in this presentation was a former P-38M "Night Lightning," as can be seen by the double cockpit on the aircraft. The other P-38 had been modified from an air racing configuration and lacked a mocked-up Hispano M2(C) 20 mm cannon in its nose. It did have, however, mocked-up barrels for four Browning M2 .50 cal. machine guns in their correct locations. See more
The two Army Air Forces P-38 pilots are shown using B-5 life preserver vests. This is incorrect. The B-5 was a Korean War and later piece of equipment. These pilots should have been using B-3 or B-4 vests (the Black Sheep were using the Navy/Marine Corps equivalent of the B-4, as would be correct for that time period). See more
