Yeah, these are the ugly, humpbacked ones. Now the original
Vigilante.... WOW! I have a lot of Super8 movies of it during
its sea trials on the Enterprise in the early '60s.


Bob,

Back in 1964 I was assigned to VAH-10 flying as a Bombardier/Navigator in
A-3Bs. (See attached picture) At the time the East Coast Heavy Attack
Squadrons were being transitioned to A-5s. The RF-8 was our Photo
Reconnaissance aircraft. In 1969 I had transitioned to A-6A Intruders and
was aboard the USS Ranger. By then all the A-5s had been converted to
RA-5Cs and all the RF-8s were gone.

Ahhhh.... I may be missing something here, but that sure looks more an A3
Whale than an A5 Vigil.


You are correct. It is indeed a Whale. I believe I stated that in the
post's text.
