McDonnell Douglas A-4 Skyhawk tells the story of one of the finest naval aircraft ever built. It will long be remembered as a rugged, reliable aircraft that performed remarkably well despite its diminutive size.
Conceived as a replacement for the AD-1 Skyraider, Ed Heinemann's Skyhawk was agile and capable of proving itself in the skies above Vietnam, Israel, Kuwait and the Falkland Islands. So impressive was its speed and agility the Skyhawk was often referred to by pilots as 'Heinemann's Hotrod'.
This fully illustrated book covers the design, development and operational history of this great aircraft.
