EAA AirVenture 2014- Oshkosh, Wisconsin
First flown on March
18, 1945, the Skyraider saw extensive use in Korea and
Vietnam. Able to haul a heavy load of ordinance and loiter for
prolonged periods over the target, the Skyraider filled a role
that jets could not perform. They performed Ground Attack,
Search and Rescue and Forward Air Control missions in both
wars. There were three
Skyraiders at the event.
