Patch

May 9, 1949, the Fighting Redcock patch was created by Fighting Squadron SIXTY THREE (VF-63). The Fighting Redcock patch background is a heraldic bar, sinister shield and cumulus clouds. Overlaying the background is a gamecock ready to strike.

VA-63 continued to use the Fighting Red-cock patch following its re-designation in 1956.

When VA-63 was re-designated VA-22 in July 1959, the new squadron added a scroll with the squadron's name at the bottom of the shield. This patch is displayed above.

On September 14, 1990, the re-designated VFA-22 modified the Fighting Redcock patch by changing the designation in the scroll to read VFA-22 and adding a F/A image to the patch.

* VF-63 was scheduled to transition to the F9F-2 Panther and had received eight Panthers in September 1951. A production delay of critical spare parts in September forced the squadron to return to the F4U-4 Corsair. VF-63 continued to fly the F4U-4 from the latter part of September 1951, until November 1952, when it started to receive F9F-2 Panthers. Later, in November 1952, the Panther delivery pipeline produced the F9F-5 Panther for the squadron.

** The F9F through the F9F-6 Panther have straight wings; The F9F-7 through the F9F-8 Cougar have swept wings.

† November 30, 1962, the Navy's aircraft designation system was changed and A4D-2 was re-designated A-4B and A4D-2N became A-4C.

‡ The TA-4Fs were tandem seat Skyhawks used for instrument training.

September 14, 1951: VF-63 was assigned the F9F-2 Grumman Panther. VF-63 was scheduled to transition to the F9F-2 Panther and had received eight Panthers on September 14th. Within days a critical part production delay forced the squadron to keep flying the F4U-4 Corsair, which had not yet been taken from the squadron. VF-63 continued to fly the F4U-4 until November 1952, when it started to receive F9F-5 Panthers.

February 7, 1952 through September 25, 1952: VF-63 Fighting Redcocks flying the F4U-4 Vought Corsair with CVG-2 deployed on USS Boxer CV-21 for combat in Korea.

In 1977 Richard Brunhaver filed a civil suit in Federal Court against McDonnell Douglas Corp. charging negligent design and defective manufacture caused it to crash. European Stars and Stripes, Saturday, September 24, 1977.

October, 28 1965: Lt. Thomas E. Murray was KIA when A-4C BuNo 148596 crashed astern of the Midway (course 065° T) in 490 fathoms of water at Lat. 10-18.5 N and Long. 109-48.3E after a combat mission.

USS Midway log, 28 October 1965 which incorrectly states it was A-4C NM-511 from the USS Bon Homme Richard.

I was flying rescue air crewman onboard the Midway in 1965 I pulled a dead pilot from the water that ejected on landing. I believe this is the crash of the A4C 148596 28 Oct. 1965. The pilot's name was LTJG T.E. Murray. He was coming in for a landing, about 200 feet from the water when his plane inverted and he ejected. When I got to him he was face down in the water and with his chute was deployed around him. I turned him over on his back and pulled his oxygen mask off and blood was in it. I couldn't get him out of his chute because when I turned him loose he started to sink. His raft popped up and I inflated it, got in and held on to Mr. Murray until a boat from the destroyer got to us. We got him back to the Midway and the Dr. told me he had a concussion, crushed chest, and two broken legs. His helmet had a big piece out of it and his visor cover was broken in half. Johnny Hale

January 22, 1970: Lt(jg). Bob Leone crashed 35 miles east of Fallon as we were pulling out from a practice Alfa strike and he had a flameout. Never could determine the cause of the flameout. From James C. (Jim) Thompson. Lt. R.W. Leone ejected safely when his A4 Skyhawk (BuNo 155068) had a flameout and crashed into Fairview Peak while on a training flight 5 miles east of NAAS Fallon. Reno Gazette-Journal, 22 January 1970.
I flew with VA-22 from 1968 to 1970 and I remember the crash in question. During a weapons training Det. in Fallon or a hop from Lemoore, pilot Bob Leone encountered complete fuel starvation (despite ample fuel gauge level) and flamed out near the bombing range; he could not restart so ejected safely near a road. Subsequent investigation showed a broken fuel line. From Bryan Remer.
Confirmed by VA-22 pilot John Cataldo, who writes: There was no fire. A fuel line broke and it flamed out. There was nothing that Bob could do to restart the engine. That was my first of 40 aircraft investigations.

Cooper, was returning to the USS Coral Sea after a successful night mission in Vietnam. LT. Cooper had guided another aircraft, which had no instruments, to the flight deck. Then as he returned and approached the ship, he was waived off, since the deck wasn't yet cleared. By then he was low on fuel and while attempting to get fuel he crashed into the Gulf of Tonkin.
