Skyraider: The Douglas A-1 "Flying Dump Truck"


For those who fought in Korea or Vietnam, the Douglas A-1 Skyraider was an unforgettable sight. Sturdy, even stubby, this Navy prop-driven attack plane was built for work. In war it was always seen in the thick of the action - where you needed it, when you needed it. Each generation of soldiers and sailors gave it its own name: "Able Dog" in Korea; "Spad" in Vietnam; some called it the "flying dump truck" because there seemed to be no limit to the amount of ordnance it could deliver to the target.
