A-1 Skyraider “The Spad”. The Exceptional Aircraft That Could Carry 14,000 lbs of ordnance and fuel

History Documentaries

The Douglas AD Skyraider, also known as the A-1 Skyraider is an American single-seat attack aircraft in service from 1946 to the early 1980s. The Skyraider had a remarkably long and successful career well into the Jet Age (when most piston-engined attack or fighter aircraft were replaced by Jet aircraft) thus becoming known by some as an “anachronism”. The aircraft was nicknamed “Spad”, after the French World War I fighter.
