Photographer's Remark

The Naval Fighter Weapons School (NFWS) Top Gun operated also Skyhawks with Marines titels as their opponents were not only coming from the US Navy. The desert colored A-4F is seen in close formation with a green colored NFWS A-4E. The E and F are colsely related to eachother, the F can be distinguished by the lack of a pitot tube on the tail.
