A-1J Skyraider VA-176 Vietnam 1966

An A-1J Skyraider in flight.

The Douglas A-1 (formerly AD) Skyraider was an American single-seat attack aircraft that saw service between the late 1940s and early 1970s. It became a piston-powered, propeller-driven anachronism in the jet age, but had a remarkably long and successful career due to excellent low-speed maneuverability, and ability to carry a tremendous amount of ordnance over a considerable combat radius and loiter time for its size, comparable to much heavier subsonic or supersonic jets.
