Sailing weekends 1975 style.

Here are a few shots of A-6E's KA-6D'sand EA-6B's ,taken aboard the USS Nimitz off Rosyth and the USS Independence at Spithead in the late autumn of 1975 . The weather on both days was pretty bleak and freezing cold , to say the least , as my mono photographs taken at the time look very similar . I've also added a few more colourfull shots taken at airshows around the same time of yet another fast diminishing type .
