16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A-1 Skyraider and A-10 Warthog Heritage Flight

From history to modern day, we stand together. This is a heritage flight containing an A-1 Skyraider and an A-10 Warthog. The Skyraider was used for close air support for our troops during the Vietnam war. The Warthog is the modern-day equivalent of the Skyraider, which provided close air support for our troops during the War on Terrorism. The photo is supposed to show that although our technology has advanced, our respect for those who lead the way remains.
