Ling Temco Vought A-7 Corsair II

@Oakland International Airport, Oakland, CA

July 2013

The Hellenic (Greek) Air Force was the last country to retire this workhorse aircraft after 39 years of service.  The first A-7 flew in 1965, entering service with the US Navy two years later.  This example is part of the collection at the Oakland Aviation Museum, located  at North Field of Oakland International Airport.  Nikon D300 w/18-200mm, processing with Photomatix and Aperture.
