North American RA-5C 156624 was accepted by the USN in January 1970 and assigned to Reconnaissance Attack Squadron 6 (RVAH-6) "Fleurs" for 1970 and 1971 on a cruise aboard USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63). Over the next 7 years the aircraft moved to RVAH-5 "Savage Sons", RVAH-9 "Hoot Owls", RVAH-12 "Speartips" before returning to RVAH-6 as AJ602. RA-5C 156624 made its final flight in mid-1978 and now displayed at the National Naval Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola, Florida wearing AJ-601 from its last cruise aboard the USS Nimitz.

North American RA-5C Vigilante

Designed to meet a US Naval requirement for a high-performance, all-weather attack aircraft, the A-5 was first flown on August 31st, 1958. The large, swept-wing design incorporated a bomb-bay between the two powerful J79 engines. This enabled the Vigilante to deliver a free-fall nuclear bomb while flying at supersonic speeds. Later versions of the A-5 were developed for a reconnaissance role and the bomb-bay housed additional fuel-tanks.
