A-7 on the USS Kitty Hawk

When you look at an airplane in a museum you think that's really nice and that's about it.  but there's a lot of history involved in not just the aircraft's service,  but the transportation to the museum.   The first part of bringing the airplane to the museum starts with the museum staff deciding on and locating an airplane that is available for display.  Next a group of volunteers are needed to retrieve the airplane, in this case it was retrieval and disassembly in preparation of placing the aircraft on trucks where the volunteers were needed.   The picture above shows the airplane being loaded onto a trailer.
I served with VA12 out of NAS Cecil Field in Florida. I was a plane   captain  and chose to stay one for my 4 year hitch (76-80). I think your site is  great and I would like to introduce you to mine as I would love to link   to  your site and possibly get a link back. Your description of the A7 was  dead on and it's the reason why I love this plane. If I don't hear back from  you I understand and will still appreciate your site as one of the classier of  the few out there.
