Photographer's Remark

Brazil bought several Kuwaiti Air Force A-4Kus for use at their purchased former French aircraft carrier Foch. This N-1004 was former A-4KU 807 (and assigned BuNo 160186). It was delivered to Sao Pedro da Aldeia in jan 2001 and modified for carrier use. Recently the Brazilian Skyhawks, that seldom saw sea born operations, were modified to AF-1A.
