What a great book. A-6 is such a cool airplane. From some angles it’s beautiful, and from other angles it just looks kind of goofy. Certainly is an example of form follows function. But what an amazing weapon system.

The Colors & Markings titles are amazing.

They don’t call it “the flying drumstick” for nothing. Or “double ugly,” even if that nickname usually applies more to Phantoms. You def want this one on your reference shelf.
