Among a few remaining flyable AD-6s, 139606
is one of the four Skyraiders "rescued" from those that
were flown to Thailand by VNAF pilots during the final days of
South Vietnam, culminating with the fall of Saigon to the North
Vietnamese on 29 April 1975.
A-1H 139606 currently is maintained
in flyable condition by
the Museum of Flying, Santa Monica, CA
Following it's arrival in the states
in the late 1970s, 139606 was first painted in the Korean War
style dark blue paint scheme of VA-145.
