The A-1 Skyraider originated as a carrier-based torpedo and dive bomber. Deliveries as the AD-1 to the Navy began in November 1946 and in 1962 was renamed A-1. It was the first single-seat torpedo/dive bomber to serve with the Navy. The primary mission of the A-1 was close air support for ground troops because of its heavy ordnance load and accuracy. The aircraft had great success in Korea and Vietnam. There were 3,180 Skyraiders built in seven major models and 28 different versions. There were 266 A-1s lost in Vietnam.Some nicknames - Able Dog, Spad, Sandy, Hobo, Firefly, Zorro and "Crazy Water Buffalo," a VNAF nickname. The 22nd Special Operations Squadron (SOS) operated in Southeast Asia from October 25, 1968 until September 30, 1970. During the Vietnam War the 22nd SOS was assigned to the 56th Special Operations Wing (SOW) at Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Base and equipped with the Douglas A-1H Skyraider. The 22nd SOS flew interdiction over the Ho Chi Minh Trail using call sign Zorro. A-1H TS 53-137628 also supported rescue of downed pilots. The shark mouth was added to TS 53-137628 as a friendly poke at F-4 pilots. TS 53-137628 was lost in 1971.
