Scott Van Aken

Three planes are on this sheet of A-7s. The first one is an A-7D of the 188 TFS, New Mexico ANG during 1976 and is in a very striking Bicentennial scheme. The overall white plane has a blue 'Minuteman' with red striping on the leading edge of the fin and upper fuselage. The lower stripe on the fuselage is blue. On the wings is a red and blue stripe that lead out to the tips with white in between it. A truly impressive scheme.

Next are two A-7Es from VA-37. Both are in the light gull grey and white scheme. First is a CAG bird with the different colors on the rudder.

The other plane is a 'normal' one, but with a shark mouth where the intake warning stripe is located. This plane should also have the horns that are shown on the sheet, but the instructions do not have them

There are common data markings for the two Navy planes. Insignia will have to come from another source.
