The Corsair

Here is another view of the jet seen in yesterday's photo of the Louisiana Memorial Plaza. This is an A-7E Corsair II jet attack aircraft, which was used during the Vietnam conflict. It was restored and was designated as the official Louisiana state memorial for Vietnam veterans.

Tara -- When I was a kid, we used to love to climb on the airplanes and trains at the parks. Too bad you can't do that anymore ... safety concerns and all.
I spent many an hour pretending to be soaring in the wild blue yonder. Thanks for bringing back the memories
