Overview
 
Combat Aircraft 77. Nicknamed the 'flying dump truck', the A-1 was a key component in naval air wings from the end of WWII into the 1960s, allowing the aircraft to play its part in the escalating conflict in Vietnam. Both A-1 attack and EA-1F airborne early warning aircraft saw action in Southeast Asia from 1960 through 1969, when the last examples were finally retired from carrier decks. The A-1s in particular bombed targets in both North and South Vietnam, despite the aircraft being highly vulnerable to enemy flak and fighters. The first book that focuses exclusively on the aircraft?s service in Vietnam; 96 pages.
