Returning to USS Midway (CV-41) which was operating off the coast of Luzon in the South China Sea with the sun beginning to set down low. I took this slide from another VA-93 A-7A. This A-7A was assigned to VA-93 from April 1973 through late April 1977. Both VA-93 and VA-56 (also aboard CV-41) were the last two active duty A-7 squadrons to operate the A-7A. By late May 1976 this A-7A was in storage at MASDC. It was later given a new life as an A-7P with the Portuguese Air Force as 5539, finally retiring for good in 1990.

slide scan from the NK collection. - SU-AXJ was built in 1974 and served for the Egyptian Government for 31 years. It was converted to a KC-135 and sold to the Israel Air Force / IDFAF as "295". In July 2021, the Boeing was seen as such again, when it made one of the rare visits outside of Israel - destination was Munich, just like the aircrafts destination 45 years ago.

Each squadron aboard USS Midway had an aircraft painted in recognition of the 1976 U.S. Bicentennial. Here is the VF-151 design. This a/c has just been relocated to this spot on the flight deck. The tug is still hooked up, the plane captain is in the cockpit, and a flight deck director (yellow shirt) is signaling the plane captain to hold the brakes. Next the chocks will be put in, the a/c secured with no less than 6 tie down chains, and the tug unhooked. If the sea state is causing a large amount of deck movement up to 18 chains may be required.

This was the personal plane of Mozambican president Samora Machel. On a flight from Mbala in Zambia to Mozambique's capital, Maputo, on 19 October 1986 the aircraft crashed at Mbuzini, in the (then) Transvaal on the border between South Africa and Mozambique. There is a certain level of controversy connected with this event, ranging from pilot error to false VOR signals. The official report concluded that it was a controlled flight into terrain.

This was the personal plane of Mozambican president Samora Machel. On a flight from Mbala in Zambia to Mozambique's capital, Maputo, on 19 October 1986 the aircraft crashed at Mbuzini, in the (then) Transvaal on the border between South Africa and Mozambique. There is a certain level of controversy connected with this event, ranging from pilot error to false VOR signals. The official report concluded that it was a controlled flight into terrain.

The aircraft was painted in this special scheme to celebrate 1976 being the Bicentennial year of the British colonies issuing their Declaration of Independence from Britain. The next year the tanker number was changed to '16' with a simple paint modification.

This KA-6D is the high tanker and is holding above the USS Midway (CV-41) awaiting some "customers" who need fuel. I took this slide from a VA-93 A-7A "Corsair II" that was in tanker configuration. There were two tankers airborne overhead the ship for every launch and recovery, normally one KA-6D and one A-7. The KA-6D refueling hose was installed permanently under the rear fuselage as seen in the photo. The A-7 was easily configured into a tanker by temporarily mounting a D-704 air refueling store with hose under the left wing, and two fuel tanks under the right wing.
