Notes: The surviving member of the mid air collision with P-51 Mustang 'Beautiful Doll'. The two aircraft swapped more than paint. A large chunk of wingtip was lost as the two broke formation to land. The pilot of the Mustang did well to escape as did the Skyraider pilot who recovered his aircraft and managed to bring in to land on the grass strip at Duxford.

Great shot - and a testament to the skill of the pilot and the strength of Naval airframes!
