The A-7 Corsair II

I know that I've posted the A-7 before but it is a cool aircraft so, here goes.
The A-7 first flew in 1965 and was built by Ling-Temco-Vought as an attack aircraft.  It has its roots in the F-8 Crusader.  It was used by the Navy, Marines, Air Force and many of our allies.  It could carry 15,000 pounds of weapons.
It was retired from US service in 1993 and is stilled used in Greece.
