code ND-521 or 621 (del. c. 1959) of VAK (Tactical Airborne Refuelling sqn.)-308 "Griffins" (Naval Air Reserve), based at NAS Alameda. Tail close-up focuses on this KA-3's most appropriate fin insignia. Throughout U.S. Naval Aviation, the A-3 was unquestionably best-known as the "Whale", because of its generously proportioned tail. This squadron wore its namesake proudly in order to advertise that fact! Tail code is a stylized "ND" (Carrier Air Wing (Reserve)30); an excellent, if hard to decipher, design.
