In late 1997 the RSAF Skyhawk training unit 143 was disbanded and its aircraft shipped to Cazaus Air Base in southwestern France. In 1998 the RSAF 150 Squadron was formed as the new training facility equipped with the A-4SU Super Skyhawks. The Cazaus AB would give the RSAF the ability to train and practice in areas over the Atlantic Ocean. On June 18 and 19, 2011 an air show was held at Saint-Dizier - Robinson Air Base and the RSAF 150 Squadron took part by sending two of its A-4SUs, number 27 and 33.

ST Aerospace A-4SU Super Skyhawk

Designed to replace the antiquated, propeller-driven AD Skyraider, the A-4 Skyhawk was first flown on June 22, 1954. Douglas exceeded the original design requirements by delivering a carrier-capable aircraft that was only half the Navy's weight specification and so compact that it did not need folding wings. The A-4 was the first to use "buddy" air-to-air refueling (an A-4 could refuel other aircraft of the same type), which was helpful when operating in remote locations where dedicated tankers were impractical. The A-4 served the US Navy until 2003 and remained the preferred warplane for the Marine Corps until the 1980s, even after the introduction of the A-7 Corsair II.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale A-4 Skyhawk is a sturdy model constructed almost entirely from diecast metal with only the smallest amount of plastic used. This model has an opening canopy with pad-printed dials and gauges, control stick and pilot seat. Each release features a pair of 20mm cannons, a delicate refueling probe and a variety of wing-mounted weapons ordnance and fuel tanks. The series includes the early B and E variants as well as the F and M variants, which have a hump on the top of the fuselage to house upgraded avionics (also seen on retrofitted E variants).
