Thanks, Tom. I think you and I enjoy taking similar pictures. I have finally gotten a rig to copy slides and negatives and have a shot of a B-57 I am going to post. I like your shot of the DC-4 with the oil drip pans attached. Reminiscent of the old days. I see you were still shooting 35mm in 2016. Hated to give it up but finally relented.

The last active duty Navy Crusader fighters were retired from VF-191 and VF-194 aboard Oriskany in 1976 after almost two decades of service. The Crusader was the last American fighter with guns as the primary weapon, earning the "Last Gunfighter" moniker. "Voughts Last Chance" turned out to be a great successor to the F-4 Dauntless. The Crusader had the best kill ratio of all American aircraft in the Viet Nam air war: 16 Mig-17's and 3 Mig-21's. The Last Gunfighter only achieved 4 of her kills with cannon.

"The prototype first flew on March 25, 1955, powered by the Air Force version of the J57, which provided less thrust than the definitive Navy version. Even so, Vought chief test pilot John Konrad easily took the Crusader out to Mach 1.2 on its first flight. . . a feat never before achieved."(from HistoryNet)
