AD4NA Skyraider

 

      

Photos were taken at The Imperial War Museum @ Duxford In Cambridgeshire, England.  The aircraft is a Douglas AD4NA Skyraider, which is a flying example, but due to mechanical troubles wasn't flying @ this years "Flying Legends" airshow, alas the misfortune allowed me to get some good close ups of the HUGE Wright Cyclone 3350 engine while it was opened up for repairs.
