Some truly fabulous stuff on this thread, but not convinced we have scratched the surface yet, must be more pictures out there?

Not exactly a colourful CAG bird, this A-6E... The other Intruders of VA-115 wore grey markings. They were based at NAS Atsugi in 1994, but I took this photo at Misawa.

There are some wonderful shots of colourful CAG birds on this thread :clap: However, there are also many which are not CAG aircraft, so maybe the thread should be re-titled "Colourful USN Birds".

For clarification; A CAG aircraft is always the first modex x00 (Double nutts) of a squadron, eg. aircarft coded 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 etc.

Aircraft with modex x01 (101, 201, 301 etc.) are the Squadron XO's aircraft.

So any USN aircraft in a special scheme or markings which doesn't carry a double nutts modex ISN'T a CAG bird!!

I almost forgot to add that CAG aircraft are also those drawn from Carrier Air Wings (CVW), so if a USN squadron which isn't part of a CVW has special marked aircraft, then none of these are CAG aircraft either.
