About VAP-61

Wikipedia

The Douglas A-3 Skywarrior was a strategic bomber built for the United States Navy, and among the longest serving; it entered service in the mid-1950s and was not retired until 1991. For many years after its introduction, it was also the heaviest aircraft ever flown from an aircraft carrier, earning it the unofficial nickname "The Whale". [1] Its primary function for much of its later service life was as an electronic warfare platform and high capacity tanker.

The EA-3B model was modified for electronic intelligence against the Warsaw Pact. Missions were flown around the globe beginning in 1956, with the EB-47 flying a similar mission. It carried a crew of seven, with flight crew of three in the cockpit and four electronic systems operators in the converted weapons bay. It offered unique electronic reconnaissance capabilities in numerous Cold War-era conflicts and the Vietnam War.
