"Kahu Composite Squardon, Ohakea AFB, New Zealand 1997"

Designed by the McDonnell-Douglas chief engineer Ed Heinemann the A-4 Skyhawk met all the requirements of the US Navy and exceeded many. It was half the maximum weight, could carry four times the weapon load and small enough that it didn't need folding wings for carrier duty. The Skyhawk proved to be one of the most popular US naval aircraft exports of the postwar era. Because of its small size, it could be operated from the older, smaller WWII-era aircraft carriers.

The Royal New Zealand Air Force No.2 Squadron was formed in 1930. With re-organization in 1937 No.2 Squadron became the Wellington Territorial Squadron. This was the first of many activations and deactivations for the squadron. In December 1984 at Ohakea AFB No.2 Squadron was reactivated and equipped with A-4K Skyhawks. This aircraft was one of the original A-4's delivered to the RNZAF. In December 2001 the remaining A-4's were removed from service and No.2 Squadron was disbanded.
