A-4 First of the Douglas Skyhawk Series (1954)

For more than 40 years, the Skyhawk series of light-weight, high-speed, combat aircraft have had an excellent record. Starting with the A-4 prototype, which was first flown on June 22, 1954, Skyhawks provided the U.S. Navy and Marines and friendly nations with a maneuverable yet powerful attack bomber which had great altitude and range capabilities, plus an unusual flexibility in armament capacity.
