3. The A-4 Skyhawk
Notable naval aviators who flew the Skyhawk included Lieutenant Commanders Everett Alvarez Jr. and John McCain, and Commander James Stockdale. On 1 May 1967, an A-4C Skyhawk piloted by Lieutenant Commander Theodore R. Swartz of VA-76 aboard the carrier USS Bon Homme Richard, shot down a Soviet-built MiG-17 with an unguided Zuni rocket as the Skyhawk's only air-to-air victory of the Vietnam war.
