Skyhawk's Last Flight
In October 2019, this A-4 Skyhawk fighter jet was lifted into place at the entry of the Albany Municipal Airport.
Dick Ebbert, Albany's former economic development director, initiated the project in 2007 by working with the General Services Administration to obtain three surplus planes from Las Vegas.
Local pilots at the time funded the cost to bring the planes to Albany and volunteers worked to reassemble the parts into one plane.
The plane assembled into the monument was used in Vietnam, Desert Storm and National Guard units. It’s been hollowed out, but it still weighs 3 to 4 tons.
The paint job reflects both the Navy and the Marines and the “Capt. Dick Ebbert ‘Skippy’” emblazoned on the side is in honor of Ebbert’s work to get the plane to Albany. Ebbert died in May 2008.
