An A-1 Skyraider Drops Bombs in Vietnam

Horst Faas, a Pulitzer-prize-winning German photo-journalist, took many significant photos during the Vietnam War (called the “American War” by Vietnamese people).

In this photo—which Faas took on 26 December 1964—we see an A-1 Skyraider dropping 500-pound bombs on a Viet Cong position in South Vietnam.

The ground smoke, which we also see in this famous photo, is from a prior pass which the Skyraider made over the target area.

Faas, like other legendary Vietnam-era photographers, worked for the Associated Press (AP) at the time he took this picture.
