Final flight of the A-7

The last U.S. Navy A-7 Corsair aircraft retired from service in Greece on Oct. 17, after 39 years of flying with the Hellenic Air Force (HAF) – the final operator of the aircraft. The Naval Air Systems Command’s Specialized and Proven Aircraft Program Office (PMA-226) supported the Foreign Military Sale and maintenance of the A-7s for the HAF beginning in 1975. The A-7 retired from U.S. Navy service in 1991, the U.S. Air National Guard in 1993 and Portugal in 1999. Photo courtesy of the Hellenic Air Force.
