AD-5Q 135018

AD-5Q 135018 resided in the Pima CountyAir Museum outside of Tucson, AZ when I took this photo in about 1977. The markings are for VAW-13 "Zappers" and the tail letters "VR" and MODEX "7XX" suggest that this EA-1F was aboard either USS Midway (CVA-41) or USS Bon Homme Richard (CVA-31)

If you are sure you have seen this aircraft at the Naval AO Museum at Pensacola, FL (as I was), you are wrong (as I was). Go to the page for 132532 for an explanation.
