Correct


Douglas A-4M Skyhawk

The Douglas A-4D "Skyhawk" was designed by the late Ed Heinemann in response to a Navy requirement for a fast (but compact) long-range, light-weight carrier jet aircraft capable of delivering a nuclear weapon. Prototype test results in 1954 confirmed that the "Skyhawk" exceeded all of the Navy's criteria. Because of its small size (wing span less than that of a Piper "Cub") and ease with which flight deck personnel could handle it in comparison with other jet aircraft, A-4Ds became known variously as either "Scooters", "Tinker Toys" or "Heinemann's Hot Rod".
An A-4 set a world speed record of over 695 mph in 1959 for class C aircraft over a 500 km course. Fitted with two 150 gallon under wing drop tanks, two A-4Ds flew 2,082 miles non-stop without in-flight refueling in a demonstration of its long-range capability.
The A-4 was stress limited to 24,500 lb total weight for catapult launches, and 5,000 lb ordnance loads on a center line and four wing racks ranging from conventional bombs, to sophisticated weapons such as the Gatling gun, "Bullpup", "Walleye", "Shrike" and, in one case, "Sidewinder" air-to-air missiles. Built into the aircraft were two 20 mm cannons.
The "Skyhawk" participated in the first raids of the Vietnam war and became one of the primary strike aircraft thereafter until replaced by the A-7 "Corsair" in the 1969 time-frame. An A-4C is credited with shooting down a MiG -17 over Vietnam. The A4Ds endured the most losses of any carrier-based aircraft in Vietnam with the loss of 195 of them in combat including those piloted by Senator John McCain and Vice Admiral James Stockdale as well as the first two victims of surface-to-air guided missiles during that conflict. The A-4 also saw considerable combat action during the Arab/Israel and Falkland Island wars.
Nearly 3,000 A-4s were produced from 1956 to 1979 for use by the Navy and Marine Corps as well as Australia, Israel, Argentina and Kuwait. A two-seat trainer version was still used by the Navy until late 1999

Figured this one was tough:


Northrop F-89 Scorpion

The F-89 was a twin-engine, all-weather fighter-interceptor designed to locate, intercept, and destroy enemy aircraft by day or night under all types of weather conditions. It carried a pilot in the forward cockpit and a radar operator in the rear who guided the pilot into the proper attack position. The first F-89 made its initial flight in August 1948 and deliveries to the Air Force began in July 1950. Northrop produced 1,050 F-89s. On July 19, 1957, a Genie test rocket was fired from an F-89J, the first time in history that an air-to-air rocket with a nuclear warhead was launched and detonated. Three hundred and fifty F-89Ds were converted to "J" models which became the Air Defense Command's first fighter-interceptor to carry nuclear armament

Right on!

Boeing B-47 Stratojet

The B-47 Stratojet was one of the most important airplanes every built. Its radical new design featured swept back wings and engines hung by pylons from the wings. Boeing used the same design for the enormous B-52 Stratofortress. Both were very successful. Boeing then used its knowledge and experience to build a radically new different commercial jet airliner, the 707. It was enormously successful and provided the basic design for every airliner that followed.
The B-47 was the first first true modern bomber to fill the ranks of General Curtiss Lemay's new Strategic Air Command. With long range, high altitude capabilities, the "Stratojet" became the backbone of SAC in the early 1950s. As fast as many early jet fighters, with sophisticated defenses and an operational altitude of up to 40,000 feet, the B-47 was a strong deterrent in the early days of the nuclear standoff.
The Air Force accepted a grand total of 2,041 B-47s, which included bombers, reconnaissance aircraft, combat crew trainer, and drones, and others. Delivery of the last B-47E coincided with the beginning of the aircraft phase out. Both occurred in 1957, shortly after the 93rd Bomb Wing started exchanging its B-47s for more modern B-52s. In 1958, SAC reached its peak strength of Stratojets: 1,367 B-47 bombers were assigned to the 30 bomb wings (medium). Each wing had four squadrons of 15 aircraft. There were also 265 RB-47 reconnaissance plane. There was also a Combat Crew Training Wing and four Support Squadrons/Post-Attack Command and Control Squadrons which also flew a special electronics EB--47s. On December 29, 1967, SAC's last B-47, exactly 20 years after the initial flight of the experimental B-47

In 1962 a B-47 crashed on Wright mountain near here killing all four crewmen. They got below the peak in heavy clouds and flew into the side of the east face. I have hiked there to look at the remains of the aircraft, it is hard to find at first as the destruction was complete. http://www.adirondack-park.net/history/b47.wright.html

Hmmm.....Not sure of the militarry designation but it was built by Lockheed & the civilian airliner was called the Constellation & a stretched version was the Super Constellation. I think a version wsas used by Ike as Air Force One for a while.

Lockheed Super Connie, EC-121K or EC-121P. Radar in the top radome, as well as underneath. Pilot, co-pilot, navigator, flight engineer, radioman, 8 plotters and later a sonar man. 2 HF radios, 2 vhf radios, 10 uhf radios, 8 plotter tables and much, much more ... including a galley! :D

There were two squadrons in Newfoundland, VW-11 & VW-13, flying the "Barrier" out of Keflavik, Iceland, plus one in Puerto Rico, and ... ??? They were used by the Navy and Air Force.
