Douglas TA-4 Skyhawk for Sale

Post by awal2049 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 7:11 pm

Don Keating is selling his TA-4 Skyhawk (N518TA) in Seattle for $2.9 million. This is one of only 3 flying civilian-owned A-4s left in the United States. Don restored the plane himself, and is selling it as he plans to retire soon. The A-4 “Scooter” Skyhawk was a light strike aircraft used in the Vietnam War by the US Navy and Marine Corps. It was used in the TOPGUN training school for a number of years, and it was flown by the Blue Angels from 1974 until 1986. Hopefully, whoever buys it will keep it in good condition and keep it flying for years to come.

It seems like there are more than 3 flying (not even including Drakken's fleet) but I hope it finds a buyer who's willing to fly it! Don't think I've seen that one ever.

I got that information from the article, but I’m not sure myself. I know Paul Wood and Doug Matthews fly one each, the Collings Foundation has one as well.
