Sixty-two years ago today, AD Skyraiders off the carrier Princeton (CV 37) executed one of the most unique strike missions in the Korean War and all of naval aviation history, an aerial torpedo attack to disable the Hwachon Dam.

I know an old family friend who flew Skyraiders off carriers during Korea. One time he was catapulted off the deck and had an engine malfunction. His plane landed inverted when it hit the water.
