In the spring of 1946, a few XBT2D-1s were delivered to the Pacific Fleet Air Headquarters at NAS Alameda for service trials. In December of 1946, VA-19A at NAS Alameda was declared operational with the AD-1. Deliveries to two Atlantic Fleet squadrons, VA-3B and VA-4B, began in April of 1947. These two units completed carrier qualification trials aboard the USS Sicily. They were soon deployed aboard the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Throughout the late 1940s, more and more Navy carrier-based units were equipped with Skyraiders of various versions. As the year 1950 began, it appeared that the production of the Skyraider was going to be winding down quite shortly, with 12 Navy AD attack squadrons, plus two AD-4N night attack and two AD-3W early warning squadrons already in service. Throughout the Korean conflict, the Skyraider was used in a variety of roles--day and night attack against North Korean and Chinese troop concentrations as well as radar jamming and electronic countermeasures. It was able to carry a large variety of offensive loads, and was the only plane capable of delivering 2000-lb bombs with dive-bombing precision against targets such as mountain bridges and hydroelectric dams. Numerous sorties were flown by AD-4N night-attack aircraft. These three-seat aircraft were very effective in night operations, carrying a 500 lb bomb, 6 250 lb bombs and six flares.

After the Korean War ended with an armistice in July of 1953, production of the continued. The peak of Skyraider usage was in 1955, when 29 Navy
squadrons and 13 Marine Corps squadrons were flying Skyraiders. The last Skyraider came off the production line in February of 1957, a much longer
production run than had been anticipated back in the late 1940s. Although the Skyraider was never intended to be a fighter, it did achieve a couple of MiG "kills" during the Southeast Asian War. On June 20, 1965, Lts Charles Hartman and Clinton Johnson in A-1H BuNo 137523 and 139786 shared in the downing of a MiG-17 by cannon fire. On October 9, 1966, Lt JG William T. Patton of VA-176 flying A-1H BuNo 137543 shot down a MiG-17 near Hanoi.

The last Navy Skyraiders were retired in early 1972. The USAF continued to use Skyraiders throughout most of the Vietnam war. The last USAF A-1 rescue mission was flown on November 7, 1972.

This is a likable enough plane to add to your FSX collection, *IF* you're a huge fan of the real-life plane. Lots of authentic paint schemes, and the plane itself is both challenging and fun to fly.

Two caveats, though:

1) Don't expect much interaction while using the Virtual Cockpit. Almost none of the switches, knobs, etc do anything. Not even the obvious throttle is mouse controller'able in the VC.

2) Make sure to download the patches for this plane. The RAZBAM site says only one is necessary if you purchase this plane through this site, but I didn't have much luck with getting the gauges to work until I had both patches installed. Get them at http://tinyurl.com/5l2zlq

Overall, this plane is a winner if you are into post-WWII high-performance prop planes. Some more bells and whistles would be nice, but still a thumbs up for me.
