Skyhawk Displays

Captain Hook's Skyhawks on Display
The Skyhawk Association has a goal of identifying the location of all A-4 Skyhawks on public display throughout the world. A list of such displays appears below. Every effort has been made to ensure the list is as accurate as possible, but some data has not been verified. Viewer help in adding to or correcting the list is welcome. If you happen to be in the right geographical area to spot an A-4 Skyhawk, please snap a photo, record the BuNo., and send it to [email protected]
BUREAU NUMBERS ARE IMPORTANT. The only positive way to identify a particular Skyhawk is the six-digit Bureau (Serial) Number (abbreviated "BuNo"). A BuNo is assigned only once and never repeated, even after an aircraft is retired or destroyed. IF a Skyhawk is displayed in original service colors, or has been accurately repainted, the model designation (A-4C, A-4E, etc.) and BuNo can be found painted on the aft end of the fuselage, beneath the horizontal stabilizer. Occasionally, the last four digits of a BuNo. are also painted in larger numerals elsewhere on the fuselage. The offical BuNo of a Skyhawk can be found on embossed metal tags attached to the instrument panel in the cockpit, and to the inside face of the nose wheel well, left front. It also should be recorded in the paperwork (aircraft logbook, etc.) that accompanies an aircraft upon transfer.
Note that a three digit side number, usually painted on the side of the aircraft nose section, is a locally assigned squadron, unit, or station marking and is not meaningful in accurate identification of a particular aircraft. Also note that displayed a/c are sometimes modified/painted to represent another a/c. The BuNo painted on that tail may not be correct; check the embossed metal tags attached to the instrument panel in the cockpit, and inside the nose wheel-well (left front). It may also be found in the cockpit left and right side attached to the a/c about where one's shoulder's would be when seated there. If you are not allowed to approach the a/c, ask a museum employee to check for you.
This page is dedicated posthumously to
Lieutenant Edward A. Dickson, USNR.

23 JUN 2010: "It flew in the same squadron Gene Cernan was assigned to in 1958; he may have flown this actual aircraft (we're still trying to confirm if he did) (Gene was the last man to walk on the moon). We're planning to repaint 142200 in the colors of that squadron, VA-113, and have the jet back on its display pylon at the North Gate entrance to Alameda Point by end of summer this year, 2010. The picture is a photoshop mockup of 142200 in its "new" original colors." Pic 2. Tim Conner

Bay Area News on restorals.

06 DEC 2010: This Data plate ids the "Alameda A-4B" display as BuNo 142200, an A-4A (A4D-1) aircraft. The refueling probe indicated a "Bravo", not an "Alfa". Fron Tom: "Now the Fueling probe... I have been looking into that and cannot find the other end (Aircraft side which would go into the center tank, "the wingbox") which tells me it was put on for display purposes only as you indicated ...now I may be not looking in the incorrect area but we have access to the fuel tanks and no piping is visible that would indicate otherwise." Waiting in Hangar 5 at Alameda. These parts are needed to complete the restoral. A labor of love will restored this "Scooter" once again, ...a dedicated group put together a plan and restored this "gate guard" ... In this photo it is being moved to the paint hangar for the finishing touches. Pic 1, Pic 2, Pic 3 paint shop.

In October of 2006 the National Museum of Naval Aviation offered up A-4C 147715 to OBA/FACM as part of their perpetual loan program. In June of 2007 a team led by Johnnie Eller went down to P'Cola to ship this great FAC treasure. What they found was an old veteran travelling under false orders in a Blue Angels paint scheme. Johnnine and his team pain stakingly disassembled our "Scooter" and brought her back to Cowtown. There the first order of business was to return her to a proper scheme that was fitting to her SEA/Cold War heritage. Today in horrendous Texas heat and humidity, Johnnie's team (after three long hours and a frozen landing gear) reassembled her back on her gears. Director of Aircraft Maintenance Bill "Spider" Spidle.

The British ship HMS Avenger is shown on the nose as Argentina believed at the time they had sunk her, but that ship had managed to survive the conflict. Pic3; Pic4; Pic5; Pic6; Pic7; Interesting to note that the instrument panel of this A-4C is from a A-4F, BuNo 155034. That A-4F was purchased by Argentina for parts, and its front panel ended up in this display.

148491 is a "C" model that we acquired from Pensacola in the late 90s. We did a cosmetic restoration and have it on display in our West hangar. The front strut is "out of gas"... but that makes it easier for visitors to view the cockpit from a ladder. The J35 is out on a stand for examination. It also renders the aircraft more "moveable" when the need arises. Stee Roberts, Vounteer and Webmaster.

The RNZAF has on loan for their musuem, from the U.S.N., an A-4L aircraft (BuNo 149516) that is displayed as NZ6207, which was lost in a crash.
"This aircraft is on Long Term Loan from the United States Navy in an agreement arranged by McDonnell-Douglas in 1987. It had been reconfigured to A-4L specifications and came from the stock at Davis Monthan Air Force Base, and was transported to New Zealand by C-130 Hercules. Considerable work was carried out by the Museum's Technical Section to reconfigure the aircraft to early A-4K specifications as operated by the RNZAF in the early 1970s. The aircraft is displayed as NZ6207 - the original aircraft being lost after engine failure in October 1974."

Some controversy surrounded this a/c; one party claimed they broke it down for shipment to "Indian Wells Bombing Range", and the museum claims they have it on display. Since the museum can check the cockpit tag, we know that the cockpit section is indeed 158182.
Update JUL 2013: confirmation that the a/c in question is indeed BuNo 158182, although equipped with a replacement tail. "In 1994, I was the Restoration Team manager for the DVHAA when we received 158182 from VMA-131. As you already know, 158182 had the top three feet or so of its vertical stabilizer taken off in flight when a turkey buzzard collided with the aircraft near Harrisburg, PA. The pilot managed to retain control of the aircraft and successfully brought the aircraft home despite the loss of one of the three rudder hinges. When the aircraft was stricken and given to DVHAA, another A4M had already been stricken and given to the base fire department for crash crew practice. VMA-131 swapped out the tail section from 158182 with the A4M given to the fire department, and we went on to complete a full restoration of 158182. Let me add that MSgt. Steve Baxter, who was VMA-131's Maintenance Chief at the time, personally gave me the logbooks for 158182 after the loan agreement between the National Museum of Naval Aviation and the DVHAA was completed and delivered. Today, I went over to the Wings of Freedom museum, joined by retired GySgt. Ed Miranda, who retired from active duty while serving with VMA-131, and stayed on with the squadron as a civilian tech rep working for Kay & Associates until VMA-131 flew it’s very last aircraft (Bu# 160024) to MCAS Cherry Point, into retirement. I have photographed both the data plate behind the ejection seat and the Bu# plate found on the instrument panel, both showing 158182. The last photo of the four attached shows 158182 as it appeared before the turkey buzzard collision, which occurred early in 1994." John Benton.

This Skyhawk Association website page is dedicated to:
Lieutenant Edward A. Dickson, USNR,
awarded the Navy Cross posthumously for extraordinary heroism.


Edward Andrew Dickson

On Sunday, February 7, 1965 Lieutenant Dickson flew his A-4E Skyhawk NL 503, BuNo. 150075, with Attack Squadron 155, from the USS Coral Sea (CVA-43), during a strike against the Dong Hoi staging area in North Vietnam. When his Skyhawk was struck by intense enemy anti-aircraft fire on a low-level run-in to the target area and burst into flames, Lieutenant Dickson elected to continue his run with his burning aircraft until he released his bombs on the target. Following his attack, Dickson headed toward the sea where he ejected from his burning Skyhawk. Unfortunately, he did not survive and was listed as Killed in Action.

By his inspiring and courageous devotion to duty, Lieutenant Dickson upheld the finest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

Air Medal

Lieutenant Dickson is remembered on "The Wall," Panel 01E, Row 085.
