    Very cool pictures. Brings back some memories on how blue the ocean is once you get off the coast.

    Many thanks for the great photos. My interest in the Vigilante was piqued and read an article online about the airplane. It had tremendous performance but had the highest loss rate of any Navy plane in VN because of the hazardous missions it flew.
