Memorial to the Naval Aviators of the Vietnam War

The Kenner Naval Museum Commission acquired the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk aircraft and commissioned its total external restoration. The 122nd Bomb Squadron Restoration Unit of the Louisiana National Guard Jackson Barracks Museum, led by the late Clarence Eckelmann, performed the restoration that was completed in September 2002. The aircraft with over 5,563 active flying hours, served the Navy with distinction from its acceptance on November 27, 1959 to its deactivation on May 11, 1974. It has been restored in the appropriate paint scheme of a Squadron that flew missions off the USS Wasp during the Vietnam War and stands as a memorial to the naval aviators of this conflict.
