The North American A3J Vigilante first flew on August 31, 1958 and was in service until
November 1979. Originally designed as a Mach 2 all-weather bomber; the aircraft eventually had
a new role of high-speed reconnaissance. In 1962 the Vigilante received new designators, the
original A3J-1 became the A-5A, A3J-2 became A-5B while the reconnaissance version A3J-3P
became the RA-5C and first flew June 30, 1962. The Vigilante was the largest and fastest aircraft
to operate from an aircraft carrier. The RA-5C was heavily used in the Vietnam War.

North American A-5A Vigilante 149299 was delivered to the USN January 1963 and shuffled
around for the next two years. It was assigned to VAH-3 and then VAH-1 as well as VAH-7 before
returning to VAH-3 that became RVAH-3. In February 1966 the aircraft was converted to an
RA-5C and again shuffled around the USN. It was assigned to RVAH-6, 7, 3, 7, 12, 3, 12, and
finally in 1973 RVAH-9 as AJ602 when they sailed on the USS Nimitz from July 1976 until
February 1977. SOC in 1977.
