In the skies of Vietnam, the Douglas A-1 Skyraider looked like a relic from World War II. The single-seater, straight-winged prop plane made its first flight in 1945, right around the arrival of the Jet Age. It was born obsolete, yet it enjoyed a remarkably long and successful career by finding a niche. Sure, the A-1 was slow, but Navy and Air Force pilots in Vietnam loved it for its agility. The Skyraider provided the close air support that the war demanded but that jets couldn’t provide. Like a tank in the sky, it could carry an immense weapons payload and stay over the battlefield for extended periods.
