P-38 vs. Dragster

The 2012 Sacramento Air Show featured a race between a Lockheed P-38 Lightning and a jet dragster. The P-38, a fighter aircraft that first flew in 1939, has a cruising speed of 275 miles per hour. The jet dragster, a car propelled by a jet engine, tops out at 300 mph, and goes from 0 to 60 in just one second. Who won?

Let's go to the videotape.
