A-4F Skyhawk #155009, C/N 13825, was delivered to VA-55 “Warhorses” in 1968. In April 1972 VA-55 participated in “Operation Freedom Train” which involved air sorties against targets in the southern part of North Vietnam. In May 1972 the unit took part in “Operation Linebacker”, which was a heavy concentration of strikes against targets in North Vietnam with the hope of bringing North Vietnam to the negotiating table.

The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was a carrier capable light-attack bomber designed for the US Navy and Marine Corp. First flown in June 1954, the A-4s combat career began with carrier-launched raids over North Vietnam in 1964. The Navy began removing A-4's from its front-line squadrons in 1967, with the last one retired in 1975. The Marine Corps retired the Skyhawk in June, 1994.
