Pity - 6 days in mid-summer isn't very long - I've been on the road and was looking forward to spending today leafing through various sources................

close enough to 24 hours and I confess my sins...... I thought it was worth a try to repay all that searching under ""What Aircraft"

Beamr has it with the Il-102 (again)

It certainly is EA-1E! Even though I tried to find a drawing of a less built version of the Skyraider with smoke and mirrors to make identification more difficult, I knew this wouldn't take long with the knowledge and experience on this forum (maybe even with some present who'd actually flown it). But I had to do it as for if there would be the opportunity to have a ride in one aircraft of choice, the Skyraider would be my choice. Take a big radial from a big bomber, sit on it and go flying low.

Sycamore, all yours.

This is the real deal,A-1H/J.
A good book is `My Secret War` by Richard Drury; A year in Thailand doing the biz,including night dive-bombing over Laos.
Probably the greatest multi-role aircraft,about 25 ,..ever....!

Sorry ,OPEN house...
