Grumman A-6E Intruder (G-128) - USA - Navy
This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission.
At first glance, this Intruder is strangely marked with the familiar Tactical Paint Scheme Ghost Grays overall but a white nose radome and rudder plus all markings in color. Actually, this was a "movie star" of sorts as it was one of several aircraft belonging to VA-165 Boomers that were cosmetically altered to resemble Intruders of the Vietnam War (VA-196 Main Battery) for Flight of the Intruder. The name below the canopy is none other than Lt. Jake Grafton (Cool Hand), the story's central character.
