Douglas AD-4N Skyraider

@ Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, NV

November 2007

This pristine Spad participated in flying displays during the 2007 Aviation Nation airshow.  AD-4’s saw action during the Korean and Vietnam conflicts and one was even credited with the only aerial combat victory for the type.  AD-4’s were the last of the single seat versions and were the most produced model.  In 1962, existing Skyraiders in service were redesignated A-1.  Nikon D70s w/70-300mm, processed with Aperture.
