Designed to replace the Douglas AD-1 Skyraider the Skyhawk first flew in 1954. Its small
size was a radical departure from the normal “Big” thinking of the time. The USN first took
delivery in late 1956 with the USMC receiving theirs 3 months later. Over the years many
nicknames were used, “Tinker Toy”, “Heinemann’s Hotrod” (the designer was Ed
Heinemann), with the E and F models labeled the “Camel” because of the electronics
hump along the dorsal. Probably the most well known nickname used for the 2,960 A-4’s
that were produced is “Scooter”.



Skyhawk BuNo. 147681 was produced in the second batch of 1960 A-4Cs and was
assigned to VA-192 “World Famous Golden Dragons”. In 1965 the aircraft was assigned
to Headquarters and Maintenance Squadron FIFTEEN (H&MS-15) at El Toro, California
Detachment “N”. Detachment “N” had a routine of naming their 4 Skyhawks after ladies
of the night so 147681 received “Fanny Hill”. In April 1966 147681 went to VA-94 “Mighty
Shrikes on board USS Enterprise becoming the CO’s aircraft now numbered NF-401. In
1971 the aircraft was sent to scrap.
