The Scooter, the Tinker Toy, Heinemann’s Hot Rod - all nicknames for one fierce attacker - the Douglas A4 Skyhawk. MotoArt and Yanks Air Museum have partnered to bring you A-4 Skyhawk PlaneTags, made with original fuselage skin of BuNo 139960.
The Skyhawk is a carrier-capable light attack bomber, developed for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. 2,960 Skyhawks were built between 1954 and 1979; Only 166 A4D-1 (the initial production version, later redesignated A-4A) were built. Its small, nimble design was not only cost effective, but allowed more Skyhawks to fit onto the smaller aircraft carriers of the era. The subsonic, single-seat, light attack aircraft proved to be a pivotal asset during the Vietnam War; The A-4 delivered some of the first and last airstrikes of the conflict. The Blue Angels flew the Skyhawk between 1974 and 1986, as did many armed forces all over the world. As of 2021, some A-4s remain in active military service.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the colour, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will have a limited option to select the colour of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
