Douglas A3D (A-3) Skywarrior






Last updated on: August 27, 2016

The Skywarrior was a large, multi-role carrier-based jet from the 1950s that served in a variety of capacities up until the 1980s. Survivors were renamed the A-3 in 1962. Only 282 were built, all listed below.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
