In October 1965 the Royal Australian Navy decided to purchase 10 A-4 Skyhawks, 8 single seat and 2 dual-seats. A-4G Skyhawk N13-154904 was delivered to the RAN in November 1967. In January 1968 the aircraft was assigned to VF-805 and spent time onboard HMAS Melbourne. In 1982 HMAS Melbourne was decommissioned so aircraft from VF-805 were sent to VF-724. In July 1984 N13-154904 was sold to the Royal New Zealand Air Force as NZ6212 and upgraded to an A-4K. The aircraft was stored in 2001 and in 2012 sold to Draken International as N142EMOpening canopy

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.
