VA-115, USS Shangri-La, 1958-9

IMG_4556

VA-115 flew the AD Skyraider when these patches were worn way back when.  These came from Dick Francis, who is seen piloting an AD on the cover of Bob Dorr’s great book about the Skyraider. Photo was taken by Francis’s wingman during the 1958-9 Shangri-La cruise.
