Nice to see the US Navy ditching the low viz schemes on its carrier-borne aircraft for something a little more colourful !!! This A-5 is preserved in the barracks area on the hill at Subic Bay - its identity 'RP-2000' is false - and presumably a remnant of the days when Subic was a US Navy base. Looks as though the anti-nuclear "flower power" children have been at work !!

Sad view, you just can't do this to a beautiful supersonic machine. =(

Honestly, I'm digging the artistic expression here-kinda doubt this can be chalked up to Filthy Hippie(C) mentality per se. Plenty of classically-preserved Vigies stateside anyway.
