| The Pictures of The two EKA3B's Are not from the USS America, or the USS Oriskiny. The pictures were taken on the USS Bon Homme Richard (CVA-31). I flew ELINT missions, TAD to ELINT-7, for three Deployments, on the planes pictured. The squadron VAW-13, DET.-31, was out of NAS Alameda. Great pictures brings back memories, thank you. |

| Looking for a front view or 45°photo of the EKA-3b on the Cat. Perfection would be one from the America or Oriskany.
The photo is for my personnel display.

| Perfect design?! Wish I'd known that back then. AECM and tanking packages/missions wedged into a heavy attack airframe flown from 27C carrier decks wasn't exactly the ideal combination IME - but it got 'er done.
