    The A-4 Skyhawk was at one time nicked name "Scooter".
    I actually served on a ship that had A-4s assigned to it's air wing. The USS Hancock (CVA 19). We had three Skyhawk squadrons as part of CVW-21. VA-212, VA-55 & VA-164.
    Those aircraft had poor or no nose gear steering so a guide bar had to be used to maneuver the A-4 on the flight deck.

    One thing I liked about the "Scooter" was that it almost never had hung ordnance. If it went off the pointy end of the ship with Mk 82 500lb bombs ..it would comeback empty.. and Ordies delight!.

    Scooters were also very reliable aircraft..more than likely due to their simplicity.

    At one time over forty years ago all CVW aircraft displayed colorful paint schemes..until it was discovered that radar reflected said paint schemes..Thats no good..

    So..this is how Carrier borne aircraft looked back in the day.

    Ah yes.. fond memories of the F-14 Tomcat. Tomcats while a beautiful aircraft to observe was in my and many others opinion a maintenance nightmare. Requiring more maintenance hours per flight hour than any other Naval aircraft...
