“Testing the “SLUF”- The A-7D Corsair II and more”

April 15, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The A-7D is a single-seat, tactical close air support aircraft derived from the U.S. Navy’s A-7. The first A-7D made its initial flight in April 1968, and deliveries of production models began in December 1968. When A-7D production ended in 1976, LTV had delivered 459 to the U.S. Air Force (USAF). The SLUF (Short, Little, Ugly, F#*@r as the A-7 was nicknamed by her aircrews) demonstrated its outstanding ground attack capability flying with the 354th Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW) at Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand, during the closing months of the Vietnam War. Learn more about the flight testing of this aircraft from the pilot of THE FIRST A-7 (D) received by the Air Force.
