Great video of an outstanding aircraft.  They are a really big bastard if you ever get a chance to see one.

Stood alongside one once...it's a helluva big airplane...a veritable flying tank! I was at an airshow a few years ago. During the flying display a "Spad" and a P-51 collided in mid-air. The P-51 fell to earth (pilot baled out safely) but the Skyraider landed with just a dent in its wingtip!
