For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!

RA-5C Vigilante, from RVAH-11, the "Checkertails."

One of our reconnaissance planes, the RA-5C Vigilante, from RVAH-11, the "Checkertails."

This plane looked supersonic just sitting on the flight deck. Good thing as with the maintenance it required, it was there a lot. But when it worked, it was wonderful.

It looks great, too. Beautiful aircraft.

This specific aircraft, #156622, is mothballed at the Military Aircraft Storage & Disposition Center (MASDC) in Arizona.
