EF-10B VMCJ-1 EF-10B VMCJ-2 Vietnam 1st EF-10B @ Quonset Air Museum
EF-10B Yuma 65 First EF-10B as F3D in Korea with VMF(N) 513 EF-10B and EA-6A
Last EF-10B @ Quantico On April 1, 1965, two 8th Bombardment Squadron B-57s are led into the area of Tchepone by a “Blind Bat” C-130 flare ship for the first night mission into Laos. A Marine EF-10B Douglas “Sky Knight” from VMCJ-1 brings up the rear to jam radar-controlled anti-aircraft systems and to detect missile sites preparing to launch as they continued north to the Mu Gia Pass on the North Vietnam/Laos border. The primary mission of the this unusual multi-service group was the destruction of truck convoys as they drove down the Ho Chi Minh Trail that fed the enemy to the south. - Oil painting by Keith Ferris
