The 8,500-pound-thrust J52 engine was first built for the North American Hound Dog missile. With models producing 11,200 pounds of thrust, the J52 soon became the Navy's workhorse, powering McDonnell Douglas' A-4 Skyhawk series and Grumman's A-6 Intruder and EA-6B Prowler. More than 5,000 J-52 engines were produced, spanning nearly three decades.
The Skyhawk Association would like to thank Pratt and Whitney for their generous support of our mission.

Land Here! -- for a great look at the A-4 Skyhawk!   "Land here" is a link to a 1990s video on the Douglas Skyhawk. It gives a great over-view of the Skyhawk, and serves as a good lead-in to the contents of this web site.
