Description

The Skyhawk first entered service with the US Navy almost 50 years ago. (First flew 22 June 1954) It is still in service with various US units and remains the backbone of many of the air forces of those countries to which it has been exported. It was originally conceived as a carrier-borne fighter bomber, but as the aircraft has evolved it has taken on other roles. It is renowned for its strength and survivability in combat. This is an in-depth look at the design, production, evolution, operation and performance of the aircraft. It will also include first-hand accounts of flying the Skyhawk in action. It is written for those enthusiasts and historians who are seeking the ultimate reference.
