Very good pics. Picture # 11 is an EA-6B "Prowler", the two seater is an "Intruder" (just FYI). I've worked on both for the Navy.

Correct.

Trivia question: Do you know why did the Prowler used to feature a painted cross on the nose and they no longer do?

No Idea. That's a good one.

(This is a favorite of mine, since I got a copy of Lindsay T. Peacock's "US Navy Combat Aircraft in the 1970s" back in...well...back in the late 70s )
