VAP-61 Pictures, 1957

I obtained these pictures in June 2004 from . . .

VAP-61 was the west coast counterpart of VJ-62/VAP-62 that was at Sanford . . . U.S. Navy AJ-2P Savage Reconnaissance aircraft attached to Heavy Attack Photographic Squadron VAP-61 based at NAS Agana, Guam, Marianas Islands in 1957.
