Douglas A-1E Skyraider
@ Colorado Springs Airport, Colorado Springs, CO
This Vietnam warbird performs a flyby at the inaugural Pikes Peak Regional Airshow. The venerable Skyraider first flew in 1946 and operated by the U.S. until November 1972 when all A-1s in U.S. service in Southeast Asia were transferred to the South Vietnamese Air Force (VNAF). This restored aircraft carries VNAF markings. Nikon D7000 w/80-400mm, processed with Aperture.
