The U.S. Navy A-7 Corsair II
My planned visit to shoot my favorite Navy jet at NAS Cecil Field was put on hold due to the outbreak of 'Desert Storm'. I was told my planned visit would not be until after hostilities had ceased, and aircraft returned home. My visit did take place as promised, but sadly, all Corsair's had been retired, and moved off to 'AMARC', to be replaced in service with FA-18 Hornets. Many of the A-7's depicted here would have been the ones seen at Cecil, had I gone. Thanks to my good friend Michel van Klaveren, whom I am convinced has every A-7 in his collection, has allowed me to add a few of his prized images of the 'SLUF' to my site; Thank you Michel.

It has never been my intention to have other photographers work on my site, especially a gallery, but with the A-7 being such a favorite of mine, I hope you do not mind the change of rules for this page being on my site.
