I would like to see a few hundred of these put to use against ISIS, such an awesome combat tool belongs in our tool box.

I had a neighbor who had been a Colonel in the Royal Cambodian Air Force. He flew these up to the end, then had to flee with his family. Lost everything.

They were always around when the crap was flying in RVN 1968 . . .

Question, I see a door on the side of the fuselage, does the plane carry more than one crew member? If not what is the door access for? I never noticed before.

Night attack models of the A-1 had an internal crew compartment for 1 to 2 radar operators.

You know, the more I look at this pic, the more I like it. And I liked it quite a bit the first time! In any case, nice job, Brian!
