The TA-4J was the trainer version of the A-4F and this VC-8 'Aggressor' aircraft was one of the last active Skyhawks in service. Her last flight was April 2003, flying from NAS Roosevelt Roads, PR into retirement at the March Field Air Museum.
This A-4 was originally built as a TA-4f but later converted to J configuration. It went on to serve with training squadron VT-7 at NAS Meridian, MS and is now on display at the super Grissom Air Museum.
Originally built as a TA-4F and later converted, this two-seater Scooter of the CO of VC-1 at nearby NAS Barbers Point is a good example of what USN colour was all about. Here being readied for the Hickam Open House, it was w/o 11.04.83
