Vought A-7 Corsair II

This is a supersonic aircraft was expensive to operate and the high speed isn’t required for all combat roles.  This plane was dedicated to ground attack and emphasized efficiency, range, and weapons capacity over speed and maneuverability.  This aircraft type was commissioned in the 1960’s to replace the A-4 Skyhawk on Navy carriers.  This specific aircraft was carried aboard the John F. Kennedy during Desert Storm.  It is on display at the Carolinas Aviation Museum.  I took this photo last summer and created it with a 7 exposure auto-bracketed image.
