One of one p38s left I believe in the UK after the crash last year at Duxford, a sad day that was.
Here I used a Lee circular polariser with the idea it will take the glare away from the cockpit so the pilot would be visible and the glare from the shiny silver plane would be dampened.
I used the polariser on all the shots that day and it seemed to work well with my position the planes position and the sun's.

A fine shot of a 'Lockheed P38 Lightning.'
Known by the Japanese as 'The Twin-Tailed Devil.' Apparently, they decimated the Japanese opposition.
