Designed to replace the Douglas AD-1 Skyraider the Skyhawk first flew in 1954. Its small 
size was a radical departure from the normal “Big” thinking of the time. The USN first took 
delivery in late 1956 with the USMC receiving theirs 3 months later. Over the years many 
nicknames were used, “Tinker Toy”, “Heinemann’s Hotrod” (the designer was Ed 
Heinemann), with the E and F models labeled the “Camel” because of the electronics 
hump along the dorsal. Probably the most well known nickname used for the 2,960 A-4’s 
that were produced is “Scooter”.

Skyhawk BuNo. 147681 was produced in the second batch of 1960 A-4Cs and was 
assigned to VA-192 “World Famous Golden Dragons”. In 1965 the aircraft was assigned 
to Headquarters and Maintenance Squadron FIFTEEN (H&MS-15) at El Toro, California 
Detachment “N”. Detachment “N” had a routine of naming their 4 Skyhawks after ladies 
of the night so 147681 received “Fanny Hill”. In April 1966 147681 went to VA-94 “Mighty 
Shrikes on board USS Enterprise becoming the CO’s aircraft now numbered NF-401. In 
1971 the aircraft was sent to scrap.
