A torpedo-carrying Douglas AD-4 Skyraider of VA-195 on the way to strike the Hwachon Dam. The nose of the torpedo is surrounded by a plywood "drag ring" that slowed its flight and entry into the water, and a protective plywood box around the tailfins and propeller that would likewise break off on impact.
