Product description

Category Aviation Books, Subcategory US Jet Aircraft, ISBN/Box 9781910809266, Publisher/Brand Crecy Books, Author Tommy H. Thomason, Format a4, No. Pages 288, Version Hard cover, Language English

Few modern military aircraft can claim the longevity and success of the legendary Douglas A-4 Skyhawk. First flown in the mid - 1950s, the A-4 Skyhawk achieved combat fame in the Falklands and Vietnam wars and saw service with the air arms of seven foreign countries including Israel and New Zealand. It is still in use today in South America. 

The A-4, also known as the Bantam Bomber and Scooter, was a small, subsonic aircraft which was originated during the 1950s. The A-4 dramatically bucked the trend toward ever bigger, faster, and more complicated tactical jet airplanes in favour of simplicity and low cost. 

Although originally optimised for the delivery of a nuclear bomb, it proved to be far more versatile in service and as a consequence the A-4 enjoyed a 25-year production run and operation for many more years by not only the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps but in the service of the foreign air forces to whom it had been supplied. For several years the U.S Navy's famed Blue Angels aerobatic team employed it for their air show demonstrations, a role for which it was ideally suited given its performance and maneuverability. 

Those same characteristics were utilised as a challenging adversary in the training of fighter pilots for air-to-air combat – A-4s flown by both the U.S Navy and the Israeli Air Force shot down faster Soviet-built fighters in combat operations 

This is a fully revised and updated edition of the definitive history of the A-4 written by one of the leading authorities on U.S. naval aviation.
