Just a bit of minutiae: During the time especially the beginning years of the A4G Skyhawk in the RAN FAA service, the A4G was always spelt thusly because typing any hyphen on a manual typewriter could be awkward as well as mostly at that time late 1960s/early 1970s the USN also tended to 'skip the hyphen'. :-)

One may see my comment in text at the top of page 15 about the 'holes on the wrong side of the page'. :-) 724 refers to VC-724 Squadron at NAS Nowra, at the time the training squadron for jets which initially had Sea Venoms and Vampires, then Skyhawks and Macchi MB326H aircraft mixed and matched while eventually by the end of 1972 the Venoms/Vampires were gone. The TA4Gs remained on VC-724/VC724 because they could not be used aboard HMAS Melbourne as the deck length was too short for the nose wheel to lift off before in finished (bad for night ops especially).

At Emerson Electric we looked into adding the APG-69 Radar to this aircraft for New Zealand who inherited the aircraft from Australia in the 1980s
