The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk is a carrier-capable ground-attack aircraft designed for the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The delta winged, single turbojet-engined Skyhawk was designed and produced by Douglas Aircraft Company, and later McDonnell Douglas. It was originally designated the A4D under the U.S. Navy's pre-1962 designation system.
Skyhawks played key roles in the Vietnam War, the Yom Kippur War, and the Falklands War. Fifty years after the aircraft's first flight, some of the nearly 3,000 produced remain in service with several air arms around the world, including with the Brazilian Navy's aircraft carrier, Sao Paulo.
The Skyhawk was designed by Douglas Aircraft's Ed Heinemann in response to a U.S. Navy call for a jet-powered attack aircraft to replace the older AD Skyraider. Heinemann opted for a design that would minimize its size, weight, and complexity. The result was an aircraft that weighed only half of the Navy's weight specification. It had a wing so compact that it did not need to be folded for carrier stowage. The diminutive Skyhawk soon received the nicknames "Scooter", "Kiddiecar", "Bantam Bomber", "Tinker Toy Bomber", and, on account of its nimble performance, "Heinemann's Hot-Rod".
The aircraft is of conventional post-World War II design, with a low-mounted delta wing, tricycle undercarriage, and a single turbojet engine in the rear fuselage, with two air intakes on the fuselage sides. The tail is of cruciform design, with the horizontal stabilizer mounted above the fuselage. Armament consisted of two 20 mm (.79 in caliber) Colt Mk 12 cannons, one in each wing root, with 200 rpg, plus a large variety of bombs, rockets, and missiles carried on a hardpoint under the fuselage centerline and hardpoints under each wing (originally one per wing, later two).
The choice of a delta wing, for example, combined speed and maneuverability with a large fuel capacity and small overall size, thus not requiring folding wings, albeit at the expense of cruising efficiency. The leading edge slats were designed to drop automatically at the appropriate speed by gravity and air pressure, saving weight and space by omitting actuation motors and switches. Similarly the main undercarriage did not penetrate the main wing spar, designed so that when retracted only the wheel itself was inside the wing and the undercarriage struts were housed in a fairing below the wing. The wing structure itself could be lighter with the same overall strength and the absence of a wing folding mechanism further reduced weight. This is the opposite of what can often happen in aircraft design where a small weight increase in one area leads to a compounding increase in weight in other areas to compensate, leading to the need for more powerful, heavier engines and so on in a vicious circle.
The A-4 pioneered the concept of "buddy" air-to-air refueling. This allows the aircraft to supply others of the same type, eliminating the need of dedicated tanker aircraft—a particular advantage for small air arms or when operating in remote locations. This allows for greatly improved operational flexibility and reassurance against the loss or malfunction of tanker aircraft, though this procedure reduces the effective combat force on board the carrier. A designated supply A-4 would mount a center-mounted "buddy store", a large external fuel tank with a hose reel in the aft section and an extensible drogue refueling bucket. This aircraft was fueled up without armament and launched first. Attack aircraft would be armed to the maximum and given as much fuel as was allowable by maximum takeoff weight limits, far less than a full tank. Once airborne, they would then proceed to top off their fuel tanks from the tanker using the A-4's fixed refueling probe on the starboard side of the aircraft nose. They could then sortie with both full armament and fuel loads. While rarely used in U.S. service since the KA-3 Skywarrior tanker became available, the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet includes this capability.
The A-4 was also designed to be able to make an emergency landing, in the event of a hydraulic failure, on the two drop tanks nearly always carried by these aircraft. Such landings resulted in only minor damage to the nose of the aircraft which could be repaired in less than an hour. Ed Heinemann is credited with having a large "K.I.S.S." sign put up on the wall of the drawing office when the aircraft was being designed. Whether or not this is true, the A-4 certainly is a shining example of the application of that principle to aircraft design.
The Navy issued a contract for the type on 12 June 1952, and the first prototype first flew from Edwards Air Force Base, California on 22 June 1954. Deliveries to Navy and Marine Corps squadrons (to VA-72 and VMA-224 respectively) commenced in late 1956.
The Skyhawk remained in production until 1979, with 2,960 aircra
The Movie LOST was based on...
Lost Horizon is a movie from 1937, from which the basic template was used to create LOST.
People on on a plane crash near the hidden paradise Shangri La (the island).
There they meet the gentle-mannered but somewhat suspicious Mr. Chang who appears to run everything (Ben).
He shows them the near-modern comforts of what is otherwise a primitive place (Otherville). He claims that Shangri La has magical healing powers which explains one woman's recovery from a lung problem (Rose) and the extremely long lives of the natives (Richard).
Among the cast are two brothers, one with faith in the land's strangely familiar wonders (Locke) and one who thinks rationally and is determined to leave at all costs (Jack).
There's a man wanted for crimes back home who thrives in his new surroundings (Kate, Sawyer). There are two comic reliefs who playfully spar and become good friends (Hurley, Charlie).
The curious brother meets a beautiful woman who encourages him to make himself at home. An eerie sound follows her everywhere which turns out to be a flock of pigeons with whistles attached to their tails.
Chang introduces the man to the person who is really in charge, a centuries-old priest confined to a single room and chair (Jacob). The priest explains that the man was brought there purposefully to take over when he dies and help maintain the paradise to one day influence the rest of mankind back from the brink of its own destruction.
NO JOKE, watch the movie if you don't believe it.
Another woman (Juliette) tells the rational brother that the jealous Chang keeps her captive and lies about everything. The two convince the faithful brother to escape. At the point of no return the brothers realize she was wrong and Chang was right.
Only one brother makes it home but spends his time obsessively trying to find his way back. In Hollywood fashion it's suggested he does, and the few who know of his ramblings back home are inspired to "find their own Shangri La."
George = Jack
Bob (Robert Conway) = John Locke
Chang = Ben
Father Perrault = Jacob
Barney = James
Lord Gainsford = Widmore
Maria = Juliet
Sondra Bizet = Alex / Ilana
Miss Stone = Rose
Barnard = Bernard / Kate
Alexander Lovett = Charlotte
the porters = the Kahana crew
Avalanche = the smoke monster
Shangra La = the Island
Dog = Vincent
The Freighter and it's people tend to relate to "the porters", and when the porters help to assist Jack and company off the island, they are killed by a huge snow avalanche, which would be the smoke monster killing the Freighter people outside of Ben's house.
Barney is like Sawyer, in the nicknames he comes up with for people.
Sondra is Alex / Ilana, who was born to explorers, found by Chang (Ben) and raised by Perrault (Jacob)
Maria is Juliet, and this tells us why Ben wouldn't let her go back home, because if she did, she would die.
Maria (Juliet) and George (Jack) have a love interest.
Also, Maria was kidnapped and brought to the island 2 years before the airplane survivors crashed there.
Father Perrault (Jacob) found the island when he was 108 years old, in 1713.
Yes, the movie uses the number 108.
We are told "Father Perrault (Jacob) is the island"
When Bob (Locke) leaves the island and is found on the ground unable to walk, a group of people speaking a foreign language throw him on a stretcher (back of the truck at the antipode in Tunisia) and take him to Gainsford (Widmore)
Gainsford also drinks scotch.
There are masonic symbols, which are like the Egyptian symbols.
Bob (Locke) is told "I place in yours hands my son, the future and DESTINY of Shangra La"
Chang is Ben, but the name Chang is also used in LOST by "Chang"
"The man that was not human" is close to "he walks among us but is not one of us"
Father Perrault (Jacob) is referred to as "a very remarkable man" and a very smart man, and the man that has all the answers.
There is a lamp post that looks the same as the one outside the lamp post station.
LOST practically uses the same exact title as LOST Horizon.
Official Lost Podcast/August 1, 2008 *Damon and Carlton have seen "Lost Horizon," but it was not really an influence on the show. "
This is not exactly a lie. It wasn't just an influence on the show... it was the entire concept! At least they admit they saw the movie.
In Lost Horizon, the time loop happens 6 times.
In the end, George (Jack) dies.
A big collection of art works and books have been brought to this place, (Ben seems to have a lot of these in his Dharma house.)
Perrault (Jacob) is in a dark room with only the light of a candle to see him by.
Bob (Locke) got angry and demanded to Chang (Ben) that he wanted to be brought to this great important man.
People can enter and exit Shangra La from the same point, (where it is cold, as the frozen donkey wheel)
The pilot of the plane dies in the movie, just like on the TV series version.
