Skyraider walkaround

December 2, 2012 · in Uncategorized · · 2 · 3.2K

Was just going through my photo files and ran across these shots taken out at Chino in November 2004 (the Convair 240 in the background dates it for me). This is an A-1J , not one of the ex-French AD-4Ns. As you can see from this well-maintained airplane, even a couple flights will turn it into a "dirty bird," which you Skyraider modelers should pay attention to. HTH
