The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk remains one of the most flexible mission aircraft ever produced. Known for its lightweight and small airframe supported by a powerful J52-P-408A turbojet, the Skyhawk soon was dubbed "Heinemann's Hot Rod" after its designer, Ed Heinemann. The type enjoyed service in many US Navy and Marine squadrons as a light attack aircraft and even as a trainer in both one and two seat versions. Though production ceased in 1979, the aircraft is still flown worldwide.This one belongs to the Collings Foundation .
