Spill was kind enough to remind me that today marks the anniversary of the first flight of the Grumman A2F-1 Intruder, more popularly known by its post-1962 designation, the A-6.
Given that our dad was flying in an A-6A the very day we were born, we’ve always had a strong affinity for the Intruder.
And as someone not overly blessed in the looks department, we’ve also liked that the Intruder may have been ugly, but it got the job done.
To borrow a pic from Tailspin Tommy…
And of course, there’s plenty of videos of the old gal.
