COMMENTS

If a prime p divides a(n), then there is a run of exactly three terms (one of which is a(n)) that are divisible by p.
If "three" is changed to "two", we get A280864.
Conjecture: This is a permutation of the positive integers.

EXAMPLE

After 1,2,4,6,3, we have had two successive multiples of 3, so the next term must be a multiple of 3 we have not yet seen, hence 9. The following term is then the smallest number not yet seen which is not a multiple of 3, hence 5.
