HISTORY
The P-38 fighter plane was the first fighter that was in service in the Dominican army, this is its history.

Before beginning the recruitment of volunteers for the invasion of Cayo Confite that was brewing in Havana, at the beginning of March 1947, former Marines pilot captain George Stamets was making efforts on behalf of the Dominican government to buy demilitarized combat aircraft. . Stamets had been an instructor of the Dominican pilots when he belonged to the US Naval Mission, which was in force in the Dominican Republic as part of the US military aid between April 1943 and January 1947. In February 1947, Stamets was hired by the largest General Héctor Bienvenido Trujillo to follow the training of the Dominican pilots without the participation of the North American government. On March 14, 1947 Stamets traveled to Puerto Rico where he purchased the first two P-38 fighter jets from the army in a liquidation auction. He was helped by the Puerto Rican merchant Manuel Bordas [1]. The first of them was a Lockheed F-5G-5-LO Lightning, which was a variant of recognition of the P-38L-5-LO interceptor. The second plane was a Lockheed P-38M Lightning.
