A-4 Skyhawk Back at Alameda Point

A restored (again) historic A-4 Skyhawk aircraft once again stands guard at the main gate of the former Naval Air Station Alameda, now called Alameda Point.

The city announced the return of the aircraft yesterday. The jet was originally blown down during a windstorm in February 2008, restored, and then damaged during an accident in June of this year when crews attempted to place it back on its pedestal.

According to the City of Alameda, NRC Environmental Services, an Alameda Point-based company that provided the crane that tipped over and damaged the warbird in June, agreed to fund the restoration and return the jet to its pedestal.

Local volunteers worked again to restore the craft and fix the tail.

The A-4 is a prototype built in 1957 and is on loan to the City of Alameda via the Navy’s Historic Museum Program.

According to the A-4 Skyhawk Association, variants of the aircraft were serviced at the former Naval Air Station Alameda from 1957 through to 1968.
