I had originally posted some images of A-7D 69-6217 of the 6512th Test Squadron at Edwards AFB back in July 2018. I've since found a few more slides...

Is it me, or the first pic looks surreal?

Like the aircraft is hanging still in the air - I think it's a wonderful shot! :clap:

Lovely pictures Keith, thank you. Picture five has a great sense of speed about it despite the altitude.

Is there a pod mounted to the side of the fuselage ? It looks lower than the sidewinder rail but looks to be a white pod. Or is it a practice bomb dispenser on one of the pylons ? Its got a weird optical illusion because of all the white paint.

It's a SUU-20 practice bomb dispenser on the wing pylon. The image is slightly over-exposed; the forward portion of the white pod disappears against the white fuselage.

 

Here's a better view...
