1965 - Vietnam War - Douglas A-1 Skyraider with Special Payload (Colorized)
In October 1965, CDR Clarence J. Stoddard, Executive Officer of VA-25 "Fist of the Fleet", flying an A-1H Skyraider, NE/572 "Paper Tiger II" from Carrier Air Wing Two aboard USS Midway carried a special bomb to the North Vietnamese in commemoration of the 6-millionth pound of ordnance dropped. This bomb was unique because of the type. Seen with the letter "E," a toilet was strapped to a wing.
