Photo Comment

This 4-seat AEW version of the Skyraider spent many years (sinced 1976) at the EAA Museum at Oshkosh. By 1999 it had been discarded and stored in some far-away corner of the airport, where it was last seen in May 2005. Then on 11 May 2006 it arrived at the March Field Air Museum, where it was nicely restored and repainted. This aircraft is reportedly fitted with the tail of Bu132751.
