EA-6 Prowler photo spread! Aviation Photography Digest has a must see!
Aviation Photography Digest has a fabulous photo spread on this soon to be retired warhorse. I've always thought that the EA-6's "stretched" body would have made a fabulous follow on to the A-6. Make the backseats into fuel tanks and we'd have the long range striker/carrier capable arsenal plane that everyone is clamoring for. It would be high subsonic, could probably carry 20 AIM-120D's and could go a long way.
It's not to be. Regardless the EA-6 has served the nation well. We don't know it yet but it will be missed.
