“Very Rare” Douglas AD-4W Skyraider Project Offered For Sale

Douglas AD-4W Skyraider S/N 7946 has hit the market.

The machine reportedly performed its maiden flight in 1952 and went on to serve with 849 Squadron A Flight as 309/J and B Flight as 431/V. It was struck off charge in 1962 and refurbished for use as a target-towing machine, returning to the air in 1963. Later, the aircraft would be stored at North Weald before being acquired by Erickson Air-Crane and transported to Chino Airport in California. The current owner reportedly acquired 7946 in 1991.

The machine is said to have “no damage history” and is “ready for restoration.” It is currently located in Canada and pricing is available upon request. Click here to check out the complete listing.
