Cover: "A phenomenal aircraft," writes Captain Stephen T. De La Mater of Grumman's A-6 in this issue. Our cover photograph, by Lieutenant Thomas R. Watson, shows such an aircraft climbing through the clouds with a bomb load destined for a target in North Vietnam only a little more than a year ago. The aircraft belonged to Attack Squadron 115, flying from the Midway.
