Douglas A-1E Skyraider

@ Colorado Springs Airport, Colorado Springs, CO

August 2014

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.
