Here are some shots from the last two FHC Flydays this year.
Check out the armament on the Skyraider!

Enjoy!

Very nice pics, thank you for posting them. The Skyraider is such a cool, but deadly looking aircraft. I wonder if it was really loaded that heavily with ream munitions, could it get off the runway?

Skyraider, what a workhorse.

Thanks for sharing.

Thats a pretty light loadout for a Skyraider, they have an incredible lifting capacity, with the A-1H having a max load of 8000lbs

Anyone ever had a ride in a B-25?

2nd only to a ride in a Mustang some day for me. :D

It gets my vote for gnarliest sounding plane of all-time. It's also the most deceptively gigantic aircraft--one would be forgiven for thinking fighter the first time they see it, but it would never happen a second time. :p

The motor-note was courtesy of the R-3350.

And anyone amused by the notion of P-47 pilots running around inside the fuselage ducking flak ought to take note of the hatch on the side of the Skyraider.
