“Save the Whale”  -   A-3 Skywarrior Displays   -   “Save the Whale”
These organizations need our support both financially and physically in order to properly preserve them. Please visit or plan your next reunion around one of these museums.  Also, you can send a tax-deductible donation to the A-3 Skywarrior Association; we’ll collect en masse and pass it on to the museum of your choice.  Lastly our birds need care, you can contact these museums, form a working party, and spend some volunteer time restoring the Whales.
 
These are our birds, they took care of us…now let’s take care of them!

The A-3 Assn. along with VQ Assn. and many people associated with this aircraft came together and raised $40K to move her from Rota Spain to Charleston SC.  The US Navy provided opportune lifts aboard USS Wasp and USNS Seay.  Retired USN VQ-2 personnel in Rota Spain restored her to a towable state and repaired major hydraulic systems.

You can see some of the handi-work of our association.  It took us years of “red-tape” and other issues but those speed ring engine inlets are now (2010)  installed on this A-3 after 30 years without them.  Big thanks to Raytheon, NavAir, NMNA, and the Johnstown County departments for approving the request to acquire those speed rings. Also thanks to John Pashley and Dick Ottalonga ( the guys who actually installed them)
