Re: Vought V-463 Attack Crusader

Scans of photocopies are not the best, from a visit to the Vought Retiree Club

First a three view

All I found was an article cut out of Air Force Magazine and an artists concept of three inflight with a sunrise/sunset background

Tommy Thomason has pointed out that V-463 was built as the A-7A with very minor changes.

Nice finds Bill - thanks for posting them.

I'm planning on coming down early November and seeing these images really gets me anxious to make the trip - way too long since the last visit.

Enjoy the Day! Mark
