Patch

  • VA-46's insignia was approved by CNO on 25 November 1960. The circular insignia had a blue field outlined by two concentric black lines; the McDougal clan tartan, drawn from the heritage of the squadron's first commanding officer, had dark blue and white lines on a red background, interspaced with green squares; the crest was white, outlined in black with the Latin words Vincere Vel Mori, meaning to conquer or to die; a white stylized aircraft outlined in black; and the banner was white with the designation VA 46 in black.
  •  
  • Squadron aircraft historically used a variety of paint schemes, most using variations of tartan over the years. The painting of tartan on the Clansmen aircraft was complicated and time consuming, requiring several layers of masking tape and colors of paint. Unlike the squadron insignia, which remained the same, aircraft tartan was subject to the interpretations of many squadron painters over the years. It was an evolutionary process.
  •  
  • The McDougal tartan was first used, which was a close match to the squadron insignia design. In 1963, CDR McKensie became the Commanding Officer and the aircraft tartan was modified to more closely represent his family tartan, a darker design with black instead of blue stripes. In 1966, as A-4Es were assigned to the squadron for a Vietnam cruise, the squadron attempted to return to the McDougal plaid, but without the "corporate knowledge" of previous painters, it took on it's own unique look, with much more red and green displayed. During transition to the A-7, the 3M company provided decals, using the original McDougal tartan, which was used for a few years. It's difficult to reconstruct the variety of aircraft tartan in subsequent years. In fact, due to changing Navy directives concerning aircraft paint, it disappeared completely during the last eight years of the Clansmen's existence.

    LT W.H. Byng Sets Highest Mark

  • October 1962
    In the (VA-46) deployments (above), I see no reference to a deployment during the Cuban Blockade ordered by President Kennedy in the fall of 1962.
    I was in the Squadron at that time. We were part of the blockade and spent time at Gitmo during the quarantine. We had just completed a Med cruise aboard the Shangri La in August 1962. The Shang, went to the yards in September 1962 . VA-46 deployed aboard another ship, a CVS U believe, but I cannot recall which ship it was.
    Martin Treu
    UPDATE 08JUN11: Further research reveals my memory is not what it once was. VA-46, with its A4D-2N, was not in Gitmo during the Cuban missile Crisis of 1962; we didn't get there until early 1963. Here's what I discovered:
    VA-46 and VA-106 (both flying A4D-2Ns) and perhaps other squadrons from CAG-10 loaded aboard the Lexington at Mayport, FL shortly after the carrier's return from the Brooklyn Navy Yards. According to her deck log the Lex arrived at Mayport on 2 November 1962. We engaged in a period of Car/Quals, the duration of which I can not determine until I receive the ships deck log for December 1962, for which I am currently waiting.

    AN Joe Fink arrived at Cecil Field, FL to join VA-46 on 23 Feb 1963 and his journal notes provide the following: 20 March 1963 to 26 May 1963 VA-46 and VA-106 (as part of CAG-10) boarded the USS Shangri La, at Mayport, FL, for a shakedown cruise to the Caribbean and Jamaica; 23 June 1963 to August 1963 they made a midshipman cruise to New York City and Canada 1 October 1963 to April 1964 they made a Med. cruise.

Clansman Skyhawk, #504, on the NAS Cecil flightline after CDR H.J. Tate, LCDR's C.Y. Dellinger & C.R. Long, LT's W.H. Fleischmann, J.H. Kirkpatrick & W.H. Byng & LTjg J.L. Buckley qualified with the Bullpup missile.
LT W.H. Byng sets highest mark when Attack Squadron 46 became the first jet attack squadron in the Fleet Air Jacksonville area to fire live Bullpups air-to-surface guided missiles. The squadron was notified it had been selected as a Bullpup carrier in October. In November, a Martin field representative moved a Bullpup trainer-simulator into the Clansmen’s Ready Room and training began. Each pilot was graded on 16 test runs so a measure of proficiency could be obtained. LT W.H. Byng, squadron safety officer, rated highest with an average error-from-target of 11 feet. All other squadron pilots were considered Bullpup-qualified by the end of the training period. Attack Squadron 46, flying A4D-2N Skyhawks, is a unit of Carrier Air Group Ten, now deployed aboard the Shangri-La in the Mediterranean area. Pilots who fired live Bullpups were CDR H.J. Tate, Squadron Skipper,LCDR C.Y. Dellinger, LCDR C.R. Long, LT W.H. Fleischmann, LT J.H. Kirkpatrick, LT W.H. Byng, and LTJG J.L. Buckley.

VA-46 "Greenie Board" in 1967 on board the USS Forrestal, 4 months prior to combat deployment and the subsequent shipboard fire. The "Clansmen" were flying A-4Es. McCain and Saul show no landings since they had orders to VA-46, but had not yet reported.
The "Greenie Board" represents the "grades" for the "Traps" (landings) by the VA-46 Pilots.

DOUGLAS A-4E SKYHAWK BuNo. 150064.
This Aircraft was lost in the 1967 U.S.S. Forrestal fire.
VA-46 "AA405" was flown by LCDR Fred White aboard Forrestal. He was in this aircraft at the time of that disastrous fire and was killed. Much research has gone into ensuring the correct details of "AA405".
Drawing and information provided by Jim Caiella. Jim has provided several drawings for this site.

There are at least two differing opinions concerning which A-4 was struck by the Zuni rocket that originated from a F-4.
One opinion is that John McCains A-4 was struck by the rocket that started the fire.
DOUGLAS A-4E SKYHAWK BuNo. 149996.
However, a according to the "Manual of the Judge Advocate General Basic Final Investigative Report Concerning the Fire on Board the USS Forrestal (CVA-59)", a 7,500 page report, "A review of the voluminous material contained in the Report of Investigation establishes the central fact that a ZUNI rocket was inadvertently fired from an F-4 aircraft (#110) and struck the external fuel tank of an A-4 aircraft (#405)...". Throughout the body of the findings there are numerous references to #405 and LCDR White.
So there you have the two scenarios.

BuNo.150129 was lost in the Forrestal Fire.
Dave Dollarhide, VA-46, was in BuNo150129 (AA417) just forward of John McCain when the fire broke out. They both scrambled out of their cockpits and survived with minor injuries, but 150129 was blown overboard by an M-65 1,000lb. bomb, as were other Skyhawks.

Forrestal on July 29, 1967 during a flight deck fire. Gerry Stark, Fred White and Denny Barton were the only pilots to die that day, all from VA-46. Dave Dollarhide was the only one in his flight of four to survive.

David Dollarhide, who experienced the Forrestal Fire, was invited to a rollout of a Commemorative Skyhawk.

Evergreen Aviation Museum, McMinnville, OR.

BuNo.152070 dressed up as BuNo.149996

The Evergreen Aviation Museum, McMinnville, OR., has recently reconditioned A-4E Skyhawk, BUNO 152070. It is painted it in the VA-46 Clansmen colors from the USS Forrestal WESTPAC cruise of 1967. The MODEX used on the airplane is that of AA 416, BUNO 149996, which was lost in the fire aboard Forrestal that year. The display, dedicated to those who lost their lives in the fire, was unveiled in a Veterans Day ceremony at the museum.

The USS Forrestal Association Historian, Ken Killmeyer, put me in touch with the museum's curator, Ben Kristy, with whom I corresponded concerning facts surrounding the 1967 accident. During those discussions, I decided to travel to Oregon to attend the event. Later, Ben honored me with an invitation to speak to the audience from the perspective of my experiences in the A-4 and as a Forrestal fire survivor.

The A-4E is a beautiful restoration and along with many other historic airplanes, is nestled under the wings of Howard Hugh's famous Spruce Goose seaplane. Glass display cases offer information on the airplane, as well as the USS Forrestal Fire. Future plans call for expanding the historical data and artifacts from the shipboard accident.

Shortly after arriving at the museum, I had the pleasure of meeting the men who restored the Skyhawk at the Evergreen facility in Phoenix, AZ, Mike McDougall and Mike Searle. It was fun to note that the first Commanding Officer of the Clansmen happened also to be a “McDougal," who used his family tartan for the squadron patch and airplanes. Expressing my gratitude for such an accurate restoration, especially the detail in the tartan from those years, I discovered that the primary source for the 1967 paint scheme was the Skyhawk Association's web site.

Last year, as the VA-46 "SDO" for the Skyhawk site, I had posted historical information, including graphics of the trademark tartan, as seen on the squadron's airplanes. It was both gratifying to know that my research had contributed to the accuracy of the restoration and ironic that I was also a guest speaker for the event. It is also indicative of the value of the Skyhawk Association's web site and their work to preserve the heritage of the A-4.

A number of USS Forrestal veterans attended the ceremony, some of who had been aboard during the fire. It was a special day to have this homage paid to them and their former shipmates. Before an audience of more than two hundred, I was humbled to speak for so many who suffered and those who died.

It was also with mixed emotions that I spoke. The A-4 was such a great airplane to fly and I spent so many thrilling hours yanking it around the sky. However, it was a somber moment as I stood in front of this replica from my combat cruise, abruptly halted by the tragic accident of July 29, 1967. I spoke to both issues and was overwhelmed by a standing ovation and positive response from the audience. We Forrestal veterans later joined in a group around the base of the airplane and cut the unveiling ribbon.

The Evergreen Museum has become a very special place for Naval Aviation and the men of USS Forrestal.
