1966 Douglas A-4A

small logo

Built from 1954 to 1979, the single-seat A-4 had a longer production life than any other type of combat aircraft in the Free World, and was the Navy's and Marines' standard light-attack fighter for nearly 20 years.

Originally designated A4D-1 and first flown (as XA4D-1) on June 22, 1954, this one was the initial production model and is quite rare — only 165 were built. Under a new designation system, it became A-4A in 1962.


Armament consisted of two 20mm cannon in the wingroots, and three external racks carried either a weapons load of 5,000 pounds or drop-able tanks for a fuel supply of 800 gallons.

The A-4A arrived at Estrella Warbirds Museum in 1999 from NAS China Lake under a long-term loan agreement with the Department of Defense.

This A-4A looks pretty good considering it arrived at Estrella Warbirds Museum in pieces after it was used for target practice at China Lake! Well done, restoration crew!

Manufactured by Douglas Aircraft Co. at El Segundo and Palmdale CA.

This aircraft currently on loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum, Pensacola, FL
