On June 22, 1954 an aviation legend was born when the first prototype of this aircraft flew in the skies above Edwards Air Force Base in CA. Designed by legendary aircraft designer Ed Heinemann this aircraft is still being used by air forces in the world today some 60 years after it was first designed. Skyhawk builder Mike McDougall and Owner/Pilot Don Keating allow our cameras an insiders view of the world’s only individually owned and operated TA-4 Skyhawk. They share with us their story on how they made the impossible possible and in the process added another page in aviation’s history book.
This short documentary has never before seen cockpit footage of Skyhawk 518 flying during the 2011 Planes of Fame Air Show and full length interviews with both the builder and current owner. If you are a fan of the famous A-4 Skyhawks this is a must see video.
