Product Description
Even though one fourth of total flight time must be flown at night, for most Tactical Naval Aviators when the sun goes down its time to shed their speed slacks, splash on a little cologne and head for the OClub bar. Undoubtedly, there would be a bevy of beauties adorning the barstools this Friday evening at the Jack Black Memorial Officers Club. After all, it was the day before a huge Drill Weekend for the air station with Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Air Guard units all scheduled to be in town for their last drill of 1991. Indeed, the Jacksons (20 bills) would be flying across the bar tonight.

Without question many of the single, and not so single, women in Southeastern Louisiana were aware of this fact and would be out in search of a pilot for a little rest and relaxation before the hectic pace of the holiday season took its annual toll. It wasnt close to the spectacle that occurs each Wednesday evening at the Officers Club at Miramar Naval Air Station in San Diego. It couldnt even compare to Thursday nights at the Spin Drifter Tavern in Jacksonville. But for Belle Chasse, Louisiana, it was the only game in town on a Drill Weekend.

About the Author
Randy Arrington is a retired tactical naval aviator who is currently serving as a supervisory air interdiction agent with the Department of Homeland Security in San Diego. He earned his PhD in Political Science in 1998. Arrington has five children who reside in New Orleans.

A-7 Corsair II Pilot's Flight Operating Manuale/ir1935327410

Product Description
Vought's A-7 Corsair II served the U.S. Navy for over over two decades, and flew with distinction during the Vietnam conflict. The subsonic A-7 was based on Chance Vought's supersonic F-8 Crusader. It boasted a heads-up display, an inertial navigation system, and other innovations. The plane entered service in 1966, and served in Vietnam in late 1967. Its performance was impressive. The USS Ranger s VA-147 flew over 1,400 sorties with the loss of only one aircraft. The Air Force purchased an advanced version, the A-7D, equipped with a more powerful engine. The plane later flew missions over Lebanon, Libya, Grenada, Panama, and Iraq. The last planes in U.S. inventory were retired in 1991. Originally printed by the U.S. Navy and Vought, this handbook for the A-7 provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this famous aircraft. Originally classified restricted , the manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.

Product Description
Arriving on station with the USS Ranger (CVA-61) in early December 1967, the first Corsair II squadron became operational immediately and sustained its first combat loss three weeks later. This book tells how the A-7 soon proved its worth supporting ground operations in South Vietnam. As it continued to serve in the ground support role, the navy swiftly introduced the A-7E which soon ran into difficulties with supply lines - perhaps on account of what many perceived to have been a rushed introduction to service. Once these teething problems were resolved, the A-7E became the primary air-to-ground aircraft of the fleet.

Naval Fighters Vol. 78

Ginter. This heavily illustrated book examines the A-7 Corsair II family of carrier-based subsonic light attack aircraft - introduced to replace the A-4 Skyhawk - in detail, covering the planes' service in the U.S. Navy and in the air forces of Greece, Portugal and Thailand. Includes close-up photographs and detailed line drawings of the cockpit, armament, landing gear, and other systems. 88 pages, 165 B&W and 15 color photographs, 8"x 11", softcover.

Force Drawdown

The end of the Cold War created a golden opportunity for reducing the defense burden and providing taxpayers with a "Peace Dividend." For the United States Air Force, this resulted in drastic reductions: 23% in aircraft inventory, 30% in personnel, and 32% in the number of bases and other major installations. Well-known and long-serving aircraft, such as the A-7D/K, the B-52G, the F-4C/D/E, the F-111A/D, the FB-111A and the SR-71, have been withdrawn from active and reserve components, and some states, such as California, have lost nearly half of their Air Force bases. Illustrated with over 410 color photographs, this new book provides a rich pictorial record of aircraft (including old and new markings) and units which no longer exist, and offers a visual chronicle of organizational changes between 1988-1995. 144 pages, 8" x 11", hardcover.

Aircraft Histories of the Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II
Roberts. This heavily illustrated book examines individual aircraft histories of the A-7 Corsair II - which, based on the F-8 Crusader, won the 1963 competition for a new attack aircraft - including information such as U.S. Navy acceptance date and flight records as well as photos capturing the A-7 from production through operations and salvage. 400 pages, 1,200+ photographs and illustrations, 8"x 11", hardcover. 
Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II won the 1963 competition for a new attack aircraft. The A-7 design was based on the F-8 Crusader but with many differences. Each individual aircraft history starts with the Contract Manufacturers Number, followed by the Bureau Number, Navy acceptance date, flight records, and where available, crash notes and date sent to Davis-Monthan AFB for storage. The 1,200 aircraft photographs capture the A-7 at literally every phase of its operation: starting with  engineering drawings, production, all but two of the commands that flew the aircraft, storage, salvage, plus accidents and crashes. The 136 patches represent the aircraft, air wings, commands, and squadrons. Its use by the Hellenic Air Force HAF (Greece), Portuguese Air Force, and Royal Thai Navy Division RTND are also represented.

Product Description
The F-8 Crusader was a single-engine aircraft carrier-based air superiority fighter aircraft built by Vought. It replaced the Vought F-7 Cutlass. The first F-8 prototype was ready for flight in February 1955, and was the last American fighter with guns as the primary weapon, principally serving in the Vietnam War. The RF-8 Crusader was a photo-reconnaissance development and operated longer in U.S. service than any of the fighter versions. RF-8s played a crucial role in the Cuban Missile Crisis, providing essential low-level photographs impossible to acquire by other means. US Naval Reserve units continued to operate the RF-8 until 1987

Excerpt: The General Dynamics F-111 "Aardvark" is a medium-range interdictor and tactical strike aircraft that also fills the roles of strategic bomber, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare in its various versions. Developed in the 1960s and first entering service in 1967, the United States Air Force (USAF) variants were officially retired by 1998. The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) is the sole remaining operator of the F-111. The F-111 pioneered several technologies for production military aircraft including variable-sweep wings, afterburning turbofan engines, and automated terrain following radar for low-level, high-speed flight. Its design was influential, being reflected in later Soviet aircraft such as the Sukhoi Su-24, and some of its advanced features have since become commonplace. During its inception, however, the F-111 suffered a variety of development problems, and several of its intended roles, such as naval interception through the F-111B, failed to materialize. In USAF service the F-111 has been effectively replaced by the F-15E Strike Eagle for medium-range precision strike missions, while the supersonic bomber role has been assumed by the B-1B Lancer. In 2007, the RAAF decided to replace its 21 F-111s in 2010 with 24 F/A-18F Super Hornets. The beginnings of the F-111 were in the TFX program, an ambitious early 1960s project to combine the United States Air Force requirement for an improved fighter-bomber with the United States Navy's need for a long-range carrier-based Aircraft.

 U.S. Naval Aviatione/ir0883631024

Product Description
Since its founding in 1911, U.S. naval aviation has been characterized by courage and innovation. Today's sophisticated crews owe their careers to men like self-taught flyer Eugene Ely, who, wearing a football helmet and a bicycle inner tube as a life preserver, was the first man to take off and land on the deck of a ship. In this comprehensive account, historians, authors, and experts, as well as active duty and retired Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard officers, contribute essays on naval aviation history and past and present aviators. Oversized and magnificently illustrated, this book will be cherished by aviators and the countless others who have been inspired by the feats of U.S. naval aviation.

It is a must have for any military aviation or Naval Warfare enthusiast!!    Vivid first-hand accounts with action photographs reveal a true picture of war on an aircraft carrier.

This is the stirring account of the aircraft carrier at war and the crucial naval actions in which aircraft carriers of all nations have played a pivotal role. The story is told primarily through personal accounts by the men who crewed the carriers and flew the aircraft off the decks, from the open cockpits of the primitive Fleet Air Arm Swordfish torpedo biplanes leading the attack on the Bismarck in 1941, to the clash of the US and Japanese navies at the Battle of Midway, to the lethal hi-tech F/A-18 Hornets of the US Navy during the 1991 Gulf War.

A-7 Corsair II Walk Around

A replacement for the legendary A-4 Skyhawk, the A-7 was a light attack aircraft based on the F-8 Crusader and made a significant contribution to the effort in Vietnam.

U.S. Navy A-7 Corsair II Units of the Vietnam War

Combat Aircraft Vol. 48
Birzer & Mersky. Arriving on station and operational with the USS Ranger (CVA-61) in late 1967, the first Corsair II squadron sustained its first combat loss three weeks later. This book tells how the A-7 soon proved its worth supporting ground operations in South Vietnam and how, evolving into the A-7E, the Corsair II became the primary air-to-ground aircraft of the fleet. 96 pages, B&W photos and color artwork, 7"x 9", softcover. 
Force Drawdown
Hardbound Book

The end of the Cold War created a golden opportunity for reducing the defense burden and providing taxpayers with a "Peace Dividend." For the United States Air Force, this resulted in drastic reductions: 23% in aircraft inventory, 30% in personnel, and 32% in the number of bases and other major installations. Well-known and long-serving aircraft, such as the A-7D/K, the B-52G, the F-4C/D/E, the F-111A/D, the FB-111A and the SR-71, have been withdrawn from active and reserve components, and some states, such as California, have lost nearly half of their Air Force bases. Illustrated with over 410 color photographs, this new book provides a rich pictorial record of aircraft (including old and new markings) and units which no longer exist, and offers a visual chronicle of organizational changes between 1988-1995. 144 pages, 8" x 11", hardcover.

From the webmaster.  I worked on the A-7's while stationed at NAS Lemoore in Lemoore California.  This was the largest attack base on the west coast.  I was attached to VA-125 the Rough Raiders which flew the A-7A & B then Transferred to VA-192 the World Famous Golden Dragons.  They made a movie about VA-192 starring William Holden and Mickey Roonie called "The Bridges at Tokyo Ri"  It's interesting to see the difference between the A and E models of this plane.  The airframe is the same but nothing else is even closely the same.  The E model had a different engine and different Avionics with everything in a different place.  As of the late 70's, every bombing derby in which an A-7 entered into competition, the A-7 took first place.  This was regardless of the high tech components on the other airplanes.  (The A-7 Corsair II was a very low tech, seat of the pants bird)  While we were on a West Pacific Cruise aboard the USS Kitty Hawk we beat the squadrons from the USS Midway in bombing competition.  This was previously unheard of because the Midway was stationed in Japan and was always on the top of the training, where the Kitty Hawk spent most of it's time in San Diego and only had a year of fleet training at the most for any given crew.  I believe that this accomplishment was because of the efforts of one man, AQ-2 Dale Shepherd.  Dale was a perfectionist.  The major problem with being on a ship for extended periods was boredom.  The equipment that you worked on rarely broke, you didn't have anything to do but sit.  Dale worked on the APQ-116 Fire Control Radar System.  To prevent boredom, Dale spoke to the Commanding officer of VA-192, Commander Joseph Cole, and requested that he take one airplane out of service at a time and groom the entire weapons delivery system aligning the gun sights and the radar's fire control system to get the most accurate lock-ons.  I don't believe Dale received any awards for this, but he should have.  Placing this note on this page is my way for saying Thanks to Dale.  C. Jeff Dyrek, webmaster.

I was a crew-chief on the A-7D and A-7K.    Despite not being attractive it certainly was rugged and dependable.  We had the last ones in us military  service 178th Fighter Wing Ohio Air National Guard.   I enjoyed crewing that airplane.    I didn't know there was so many books about SLUF.   I was looking on the web for info about the A-7 strike fighter and that's how I found your site.    That was supposed to be the last upgrade for the A-7 airframe  and avionics modification with an afterburning engine     The program was canceled after a crash due to airframe failure and the A-7 was completely   retired. I  will bookmark your site .   I  think I might like to read some of those books.Herman Carnes.
