Sample text

The ECM operator's side had the scope for the AN/APS-31 radar at the top. The panel below it had controls for the searchlight and the aircraft's electronic countermeasures equipment. (National Archives) The engine ignition switch was on the instrument panel just forward of the" left console. The landing gear control lever, with its wheel shaped knob, was just above the pilot's oxygen regulator at the front of the console. A small hydraulic pressure gage was just aft of the oxygen regulator, and aft of it were the engine control levers, including the supercharger control, throttle, propeller pitch control, and mixture control.

The new pylon could carry external stores up to 2,300 pounds in weight. This pylon was also standard on the subsequent AD-6 and AD-7 versions. 57 AD-5 MAIN LANDING GEAR DETAILS The landing gear on the AD-5 versions was the design without large main gear doors covering the retracted wheel. Instead, the gear rotated ninety degrees when it retracted, and the wheel and tire fit into an uncovered circular well. With some minor modifications this main gear design without doors for the wheel wells was also used on the XBT2D, AD-1, AD-3vv, and AD-4W This rear view of the right landing gear shows the retraction mechanism, strut braces, and the aft side of the strut cover.

Note the F8F Bearcat fighters in the background. (NMNA) This AD-2Q also operated from USS BOXER during the carrier's cruise to the western Pacific in late 1949 and early 1950. It was assigned to VA195, a sister squadron to VA-194 shown in the photograph immediately above. As is the case to this day, aircraft in a carrier's air wing had three-digit numbers called a modex, with the first digit being the same for each aircraft in that squadron. The aircraft in VA-194 had numbers that began with 4, while those in VA-195 began with 5.
