Grumman A-6 Intruder This plane is a Navy and Marine aircraft. The Grumman A-6 Intruder flew in the Vietnam war, it flew for 34 years. The prototype flew in 1960, and was released in 1963. It was retired in 1997. It was unpopulair, because of it's ugly shape and it was just simply uneyeappealing. When the people of the U.S. saw it's preformance though, it became very populair. Now, it's reighn of glory has come to an end, and it is among many of the forgotten millitary jets. It had a cathrode ray tube, so the pilots could see at night or in rain sleet snow, and hail. It made this plane an all-weather attack aircraft. It had a laser on the bottom of it's nose, enableing it to lock onto it's targets, and then it could do whatever it needed to do to dodge enemy fire, and it would hit it's target most of the time. It had two crew members. They sat side-by-side, under an unusual two-window pained glass canopy in the cockpit.
