A beaut of a Scoot(er)

If this shot of a stunningly restored and US Navy-liveried Douglas A-4 Skyhawk (also nicknamed the ‘Scooter’) doesn’t take you back several decades, then nothing will. The image was taken at the concisely-titled Valiant Air Command Tico Warbird Airshow on 22 March. The event, which also included one of the final appearances by the US Air Force’s Thunderbirds display team this year due to the effects of sequestration cuts, took place at the Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville, Florida. Registered as NX2262Z, the aircraft on show is an A-4C, and was restored by Skyhawk Ventures.
