Douglas Skyshark A2d Turbo Prop Attack Book Description:

First published in 1997, the book chronicles the short life of the XT-40 powered turbo-prop Douglas A2D Skyshark. It was dubbed later in life as "Son of Spad," Spad being the popular nickname for the AD/A-1 Skyraider. The aircraft produced an unprecedented amount of power, vibration and noise which along with the troublesome power plant eventually doomed the project. If the project had been successful this would have been the Navys heavy lifter with 22-hard points for hanging ordnance. 99 b&w photos and 61-illustrations.
