Whale arrives at Patriots PointWaring Hills Jul 08, 2010
Our A-3D Skywarrior arrived on high tide this afternoon. Originally designed by Douglas Aircraft Corporation to be a twin engined nuclear bomber for the Navy, the “Whale” served most of its career as an ECM platform and tanker aircraft. It was to be the heaviest Naval aircraft flying from carrier flight decks at the weight of 84,000 lbs.
