Skyhawk flies in Florida

At Titusville Airport, close to the eastern coast of Florida, former US Navy pilot Doug Matthews flew his newly completed Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk, BuNo 156925, for the first time in early November. The Skyhawk has gone through a major upgrade, including a complete cockpit rebuild with Matthews’ company, Classic Fighters of America. The two-seater has been painted in the markings of VF-126, although it originally served with VT-86.
