Title: A Canadian A4 Skyhawk? Good catch today!
Post by: CYYZGUY on December 28, 2014, 08:58:23 PM
So I wake up from a nap, come downstairs and see an A4 Skyhawk on my screen.

Looks like they have other aircraft too...

Turns out we have a Canadian Aggressor company..

Jason,

Discovery have a training contract with the German Air Force http://www.discoveryair-ds.com/page?a=1395&lang=en-CA and 6 A-4's have been through Prestwick recently.  Two were eastbound in November and 4 westbound on one day in December 3rd that I managed to photograph.  Hopefully the one you picked up is heading this way as I noted it on the network in Arizona before Christmas.
