I love history, especially military history, the men and their machines. Airplanes have also fascinated me since I was a little kid, yet somehow all the model airplanes I made usually got shot down. Can’t imagine a little boy being destructive.
The Douglas A-1 Skyraider started out as a carrier based torpedo/bomber but saw a lot of service as a close ground support for the troops. This photo was taken just two weekends ago here in Tyler at the airport where they have several historical planes and a wonderful museum.
