Patch

  • 194? - - Reserve Fighter Squadron 741 - no patch utilized.
  • 1961 - - Reserve Attack Squadron 741 - The Attack Squadron 741 patch was created by CDR Grant Goodell, Commanding Officer 1963 to 1965. No patch was utilized prior to the transition to A-4 Skyhawks. The Yin/Yang background signified that squadron reservists were part time Navy and part time civilian, with the golden dart to signify the A4.
  • 1968 - - Reserve Attack Squadron VA-2F1 - patch remained unchanged.
  • 1970 - - The Blue Dolphin squadron insignia was designed by Lieutenant Charlie Del Pizzo, a Selected Air Reserve of ATKRON Two Zero Three. The patch background design, taken from the VA-741 patch and to red and blue, is a facsimile of the Chinese symbol know as Yin and Yang. These symbols traditionally represent the inner and outer beings of man molded into one. The Yin and Yang on the VA-203 patch represent the molding of the citizen and the sailor into one. The blue dolphin was chosen as being representative of the Florida home base and operating area, the waters of the Atlantic, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.
  • 1989 After being re-designated VFA-203, the squadron patch was retained, with only the squadron designation being changed.

Events

  • Through the years:
    VA-302/741 aircraft.

  • 194x:
    About 1948 Reserve Fighter Squadron SEVEN HUNDRED FORTY-ONE (VF-741) was established at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida. The Squadron was probably assigned the Grumman F6F Hellcat (Whistling Outhouse) for its first aircraft. Sometime during the Korean War (1950?) the Squadron was probably assigned the Chance Vought F4U Corsair. After the Korean War (1954?) the Squadron was assigned Grumman F-9F6 Cougar. VF-741 later transitioned to the Grumman F-9F8 in 1958.
    The 1949 Navy Reserve concept was to attach Reserve Units to a Naval Air Reserve Traning Unit (NARTU) which held assets such as the aircraft the Reserve Units flew. Reserve squadrons only consisted of reserve personnel and reported to their NARTU.

  • 1961:
    Reserve Fighter Squadron SEVEN HUNDRED FORTY-ONE (VF-741) was redesignated as Reserve Attack Squadron VA-741 at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida. The Squadron was assigned the Douglas A-4A (A4D-1) Skyhawk. Later, the squadron also received the Douglas A-4B (A4D-2) Skyhawk.

  • 1968:
    Reserve Attack Squadron SEVEN HUNDRED FORTY-ONE (VA-741) was redesignated as Reserve Squadron VA-2F1 at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida. This was done as a result of a temporary Navy Reserve reorganization prompted by problems encountered when reserve units were activated during the USS Pueblo crisis. Reserve Squadron VA-2F1 continued to report to their NARTU and fly the Douglas A-4B (A4D-2) Skyhawk.
    Up to this time, a Reserve Unit (Squadron) reported to the Naval Air Reserve Unit on their Naval Air Station. The 1961 Navy Reserve concept had Reserve Squadrons hold their own assets (such as the aircraft the Reserve Squadron flew).

  • October 26, 1969:
    Lt. Charles "Spanky" Kelaghan was killed when his A-4 Skyhawk BuNo 142126 crashed into the St. John's River while making a landing approach to NAS Cecil Field.
    Panama City News, Panama City, FL, Monday Morning, October 27, 1969.

    When Kelaghan's airplane was recovered from the river in a thousand pieces,it was spread out all over the floor of one of the old hangars at NAS Jax. The Safety Center created a safety poster from a photo of the wreckage with the slogan "No approach is so bad it can't be salvaged." I've tried to find it on the Internet,but have been unsuccessful. Kelaghan and a couple of other NA's owned The Tree Steakhouse which was very successful in Jax for a long time.

  • July 18, 1970:
    The Navy Reserve Force concept was implemented and Reserve Attack Squadron TWO HUNDRED THREE (VA-203) Blue Dolphins was established at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida, using some personnel assets of Reserve Attack Squadron VA-2F1. Up to this time, a Reserve Unit (Squadron) reported to the Naval Air Reserve Training Unit (NARTU) on their Naval Air Station. This 1970 Navy Reserve concept had Reserve Squadrons hold their own assets (such as the aircraft the Reserve Squadron flew) and both active duty and reserve personnel were assigned, reporting to a reserve commanding officer. However, for Skyhawk Association purposes Reserve Squadron VA-2F1 was redesignated VA-203 when Naval Air Reserve Units were combined into a newly established Carrier Air Wing 20 (East Coast AF) and Carrier Air Wing 30 (West Coast ND). The new VA-203 was assigned the Douglas A-4L Skyhawk. About 100 A-4C Skyhawks were remanufactured into the hot-rod A-4L.

  • May 20, 1972:
    I was flying Dan Condon's wing, A-4L BuNo 148578, during a practice GCA at NAS Jacksonville. The sun had already set, but we still had decent light. At the runway, Dan made a go around for a left downwind and approach back to Runway 9. I delayed my turn a bit to take interval for landing and as I leveled my wings on the downwind, he made his base turn call, "Three in the green. Give me the nod and I'll hit the sod." I was still smiling to myself as I approached the base turn, but then realized I'd lost sight of him. In the next instant, I saw the bright flame of his ejection seat slightly to the left and low over the Ortega River. It all happened very fast. The chute streamed, then opened parallel to the water, while the airplane pancaked onto the river. The chute swung Dan downward, quickly splashing him feet first into the water. The airplane skidded on it's belly to the far bank, flipping upside down. There was no fire. I decended to a couple of hundred feet and circled over the scene, while telling the tower to launch a helo. It was Sunday and boats were up and down the narrow river. One stopped by Dan, who was surrounded by his floating parachute, and he was pulled out of the water. He later related that it was a boatload of drunken A-7 pilots, who were applauding as they slowed next to him, asking Dan if he'd like to take a turn skiing. The J-65 had unwound after his last call to the tower and Dan had taken the time to turn away from an apartment building.

Photographs

Webmaster note:
Prior to 1970, reserve aircraft belonged to the local NARTU or Reserve Naval Air Station. Except for those squadrons on active duty, as in Korea, no reserve squadron "owned" their aircraft, as they were assigned to the NARTU/Station. In 1970, during that reorganization of the reserves into the "Reserve Force" concept, each new squadron was made independent of NARTU (later called NAR), and assigned either to CVWR-20 or CVWR-30. All squadrons were then made in the image of active duty units, with the reserve unit Commanding Officer owning the aircraft and reporting to the CAG. On this site you will find all era reserve combat aircraft images in the appropriate squadron photo page, and only non-combat support aircraft images in the reserve station photo page. Exceptions are if the Skyhawk was TDY to the base, or it can not be identified to a unit.
