The pilot's call sign is "Smoke" (his actual name unknown) which seems quite appropriate, considering the color scheme. Belonging to Fighting 43 Challengers, NAS Oceana VA, this is the stripped down and uprated version of the A-4F (Foxtrot) known as the Super Fox. Used by the Blue Angels during their Scooter days, this was a pure ACM machine which could easily eat an unwary opponent's "lunch"! Ambush 22 awaits fueling on the NAS Atlanta t-line; the sqn. insignia appears to have been effaced from the tail.
