Douglas A-4 Skyhawk : Attack and Close-support Fighter Bomber Hardback


The Skyhawk first entered service with the US Navy almost 50 years ago.

It is still in service with various US units and remains the backbone of many of the air forces of those countries to which it has been exported.

It was originally conceived as a carrier-borne fighter bomber, but as the aircraft has evolved it has taken on other roles.This is an in-depth look at the design, production, evolution, operation and performance of the aircraft.

It will also include first-hand accounts of flying the Skyhawk in action.
