Books about the U.S. Navy A-4 Skyhawk Light Attack jet fighter made by McDonnell Douglas.

The A-4 Skyhawk was a very popular light attack jet fighter used in the U.S. Navy in squadrons like training squadron VA-127 at NAS Lemoore in Lemoore California.  This plane was also used by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels for a number of years because of its low cost of operation and super maneuverability.  The A-4 Skyhawk along with the A-7 Corsair II were placed by the very much modernized F-18 Hornet that is in use by the Navy today.  The A-4 Skyhawk had a remarkable 720 degree per second roll rate, that was two rolls in one second which I find incredible.  I have personally watched an A-4 Skyhawk crash at NAS Lemoore as it landed on its belly tanks with the wheels up after it lost power due to a wrench that was left in the intake which damaged the engine.  This airplane book store page has a good collection of A-4 Skyhawk books that you will enjoy to read.  C.
