Intruder on the Lexington

The A-6A Intruder flew from 1960 to 1997 carrying out its mission of close air support and tactical/strategic bombing.

The A-6E Intruder carried an impressive array of weapons and electronic devices.  The missions range from aerial refueling and close air support to tactical/strategic bombing, electronic counter measures, reconnaissance and SAM suppression.

This rugged and reliable aircraft was the first all weather, day or night, low level attack bomber and has set high standards that similar aircraft will be measured for generations to come.

This aircraft on the USS Lexington is on loan from the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Florida.
