VC-35/VA(AW)-35
Welcome Aboard!

 

This site is dedicated to those who flew, rode in, washed, wiped, changed plugs, patched holes, wired, armed, maintained "black boxes", and kept these aircraft in the air from 1950 to 1959. In addition, it is a salute to one of the greatest aircraft ever built--the Douglas Skyraider!
