The first VNAF Skyraider defected to Cambodia, it arrived on February 27, 1962, its pilot 2nd Lt. Nguyen Van Cu belly landing at Pochentong due to heavy battle damage, after a coup-attempt against President Diem and South Vietnamese Independence Palace bombing. It was not repaired and probably still wore VNAF painting and markings.
