Great to see these wonderful birds still in service with the USN!
Hugh Somsen
A neighbor flew on of those in the Royal Cambodian Air Force. Thankfully he and family escaped.

Sorry N9341C, I did not mean to Report your entry, I thought that it says Reply and hence my confusion. I am sorry. What I wanted to say is that these wonderful planes stopped flying for the US' Navy and Air Force in 1972 but a few are kept flying privately, fortunately.

Do they go back to WW2?

I always think of the Skyraider as the Korean and Vietnam War eras' version of today's A-10 Warthog, which also continues to fly missions far beyond the expected service life of its airframe.
Didn't John McCain crunch a couple of these early in his career?

John mcGeoghan - the design of the Douglas A-1 Skyraider was done during WWII by Ed Heinemann of Douglas Aircraft, but it did not enter U.S. Navy service until late 1946, one year after the war had ended. However, I think it's safe to say that the Skyraider does indeed "go back to WW2".

So, the designers didn't bother about a bomb-bay? Just wing-borne bombs and rockets,only.

when I was a combat tracker attached to 1st Cav div we got air support from the South Vietnamese flying the Douglas A-1 Skyraider They used American colors on planes and found out later that they were flown by South Vietnamese pilots

Great shot! I used to see these aircraft come into Sigonella from the ship back in the late sixties. One even crashed there. I was told that it burst into flames in the engine compartment. The pilot bailed out safely. I recall seeing the wreckage being hauled in to the airfield on a trailer.
