Frequently interchanged personnel with the provisional 4554th Tactical Fighter Training Squadron assigned to the 354th at Myrtle Beach.

Vought A-7D Corsair II

Designed as a longer-range, higher-payload replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk, the A-7 Corsair II was first flown on September 27th, 1965. This aircraft entered service during the Vietnam war and later became one of only a few US Navy aircraft to serve with the US Air Force. It possessed cutting edge technologies; it was one of the first aircraft to use a turbofan engine, an internal navigation system and a "head-up" display. Late in its career, A-7s were used for pilot training and were parked outside of hangars in order to draw the attention of Soviet spy satellites away from the fledgling F-117.

JC's 1:72 scale A-7 Corsair II model does great justice to this iconic aircraft. No detail has been overlooked, from the tinted bulletproof windscreen to the complete set of removable wing- and fuselage-mounted ordnance. This model has an opening hinged canopy with detailed pilot figure, two nose-mounted pitot tubes and arrestor hook detail. Details of the gear actuator and hydraulic lines are visible in the wheel wells. Its most unique feature is its steerable nose wheel, a finishing touch that is uncommon in any scale.
