A brief history

Designed by Douglas Aircraft Company, the Skyhawk is a single seat, carrier-capable attack craft. The Skyhawk was developed for the US Navy and Marine Corp as a lightweight, easily produced aircraft. The Skyhawk has a max speed of 970km/h and a max take off weight of 11,100 kg.

The plane played key roles in the Vietnam war as well as the Yom Kippur and Falklands conflicts. Although more than 60 years after it’s first flight, may still remain in active service around the World today.
