Remark Photographer
156790 / AJ/411 (cn C-057) Back in the days when the USN was synonymous with colour. This VA-86 A-7C was later converted to a TA-7C two-seater and entered AMARC in 1992. It now serves the Greek AF. Following NATO exercise "Northern Merger", in which USS America joined with HMS Ark Royal to provide air support for a NATO task force amphibious landing, she visited Portsmouth for five days from 29.9.74. Decommissioned in 1996, she was used for attack testing with live weapons and was controversially scuttled off NC in 2005

Mea culpa - boy, did I screw up on my previous post. I guess that I had VA-82 on the brain. Should read "two A-6Es of VA-35 Black Panthers". OOPS.

Also pictured - two A-7Cs of VA-82 Marauders (my squadron in the late '70s-early '80s) and two A-6Es of VA-82 Black Panthers. Sorry to say, but I don't know where the VF squadrons usually assigned to Carrier Air Wing 8 were for this cruise, but fighter cover is ably provided by F-4Js of VF-103 Sluggers (CVW-3/USS Saratoga) and VF-213 Black Lions (CVW-11/USS Kitty Hawk). This was the last cruise that CVW-8 made onboard USS America, before globetrotting with USS Nimitz for the next 13 years.
