Flew in to Richmond, Indiana for a few hours today.  Actually, I flew in to Richmond then drove from Richmond to Sidney, Ohio to look at some equipment.

This intruder is sitting on display at the Richmond Municipal airport.

It would be my number 2 choice to fly, right behind a Phantom, if I could fly any plane I wanted to.  A lot of history here.

It's the little things like this that knock my socks off.

Stay safe.

You all should read:
Launch the Intruders: A Naval Attack Squadron in the Vietnam War, 1972 By Carol Reardon.

Carol is an outstanding military historian, just finishing a stint at the Army War College. See:

"Flight of the Intruder" by Stephen Coonts is another good one.
