The P-38L is part of Maj Thomas B. McGuire Jr Memorial (on base). Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst infrequently organises air shows on its vast grounds, which are home to air force (McGuire), army and navy units (both at Lakehurst), most of the latter moved in from NAS Willow Grove (PA) a few years ago. The huge air force apron on the north side of the triangle main runways of McGuire was used as static and flight lines, making photography a backlit venture for most of the day, whilst most KC-10s were dispersed from the base. That said, the variety of aircraft attending was as expected on a joint base this size. The report was made on the press and family day organized on Friday 11 May, before the actual show weekend.
 
Note: The BuNo’s of both VMFA-112 Hornets were confirmed at their home base on 18 and 20 May 2012.
