Notes: PdF, Catalogue # 1111. CD available

Aero Research has provided us another fine set of photos, this time it is a compilation of images of the Grumman A-6 and EA-6A/B. The EA-6B had a long and useful life until being replaced by the EA-18G. For the A-6, many felt that it was retired too early. Indeed, Grumman had built replacement wings for the fleet and was in the process of upgrading planes when the axe fell.

All of the units operating the Intruder and most of the Prowler squadrons are covered in this one. This includes those of the USMC. You'll find a nice selection of black and white images interspersed with the usual color photos.

This offering provides well over the usual 150 images with as much information as is known provided with the image. I review the PdF version as it saves on shipping costs and I can easily save the images to my computer. The PdF is emailed in two e-mails so there is not the huge expense of shipping if you live outside the US. The CD is also available if you wish it.  This is a great offering if you like the aircraft and is well worth getting.

Aero Research is converting its previous editions to PdF format, but that will not happen overnight. There is a real benefit from PdF files for overseas buyers as one does not pay shipping. Check their website for the latest conversions.
