Photographed at the Duxford Air Show – 5th September 2009.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Douglas AD-4N Skyraider of the Kennet Aviation Collection, BuNo 126922. It is painted as a A-1H (AD-6) of attack squadron VA-176 Thunderbolts, which was assigned to Attack Carrier Air Wing Ten (CVW-10) during a deployment to Vietnam on the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid (CVS-11) from 4 April to 21 November 1966. The real aircraft AK-402 was acutally A-1H BuNo 134472. It was later transferred to the South Vietnam Air Force. Flown to Thailand in 1975, it is now on display in the Royal Thai Air Force Museum in US Air Force colours.

The Douglas A-1 (formerly AD) Skyraider was an American single-seat attack aircraft that saw service between the 1950s and early 1970s. It was a propeller-driven anachronism in the jet age, and was nicknamed “Spad”, after a World War I fighter. However, the Skyraider had a remarkably long and successful career and inspired a straight-winged, slow-flying, jet-powered successor, the A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog).
