Here's a link, https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2017/june/pilot/douglas-a-4
Nice little article w/ pics. Cites 1/2 half stick deflection for 360 deg/sec roll rate, full deflection yields 760 deg/sec. Our squadron had just started a transition to A7-A's from A4's when I got there. But it was this little guy that was the lab project for AE's in '71. Article also states that, and this was surprising to me, this aircraft could carry the same bomb load as a B-17! Yes,John ..."Tough little bird!"

nice link.
The Blue Angels I saw @ the USNA in 1976 & 1981 were flying Tom-cats--F-14's I have pics some place! A Warbird much like this one pictured is on the grounds @ the Naval Academy if memory serves me

Nice shot of one of Draken Internationals Skyhawks a common sight at NAS Fallon as they operate several USMC and Navy tactical training contracts.

Ironic that it should have "Draken" emblazoned on its flanks. Doesn't look like any Saab I know! :)

Hey, that's a Draken 146 A-4! Doesn't look like Florida..

There's a good chance that hotshot Dale "Snort" Snodgrass might be behind the stick on that?

Did you get any further shots? Possible ground shots?

Isn't the Internet a humbling experience. ;) I had this page up to respond and walked away, came back to read Glenn's article (great article, btw. Thank you, Sir.) and then posted my thoughts. Then of course to my surprise when refreshed to see a lot more from others.

Thank you, Sir, for bringing that forward!

The venerable A-4. It is amazing how much love and admiration can be felt for one single aircraft type clearly demonstrated in such few words as a result of one picture. What a great community this is! You guys and gals make it fun being a part of this great gathering of aviators and enthusiasts. Thank you!!
