The BW version is really cool with the slow exposure.

David,

I sent a link for your post to my brother, and thought I should share his response, it was "Thank you. Never seen one that clean."

Glad you are here again. If you take requests, more Skyraiders, please.

He's right, it was freshly scrubbed. Skyraiders are one of the oiliest birds ever flown. A clean Skyraider is usually one that's out of oil.

David,
Thanks for the followup and additional images. I think he was comparing it to the ones he flew when they were still in active service.
