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.
