From the Archive: LTV A-7A Corsair II | Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing (November 2015)

This is an LTV A-7A Corsair II that I saw at the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing back in November of 2015. The A-7 Corsair II is an attack plane that was made by Ling-Temco-Vought between 1965 and 1984, and 1,545 were built. These were primarily operated by the US Air Force, Navy, and Air National Guard. The first flight of the A-7 was on September 26, 1965. The jet entered service on February 1, 1967. The engine is an Allison TF41-A-2 non-afterburning turbofan engine that produces 15,000 pounds of thrust. The maximum speed is 690 mph.
