This is an updated livery (2.0) of the John McCain A-4E Skyhawk (149959) he was flying when he was shot down over Vietnam in 1967. New livery icludes better details and weathering. The livery itself is from the U.S. Navy attack squadron VA-163 Saints. Only difference from the original is the "LCDR JOHN McCAIN" name tag added under the cockpit to denote his final rank in the Navy. RIP John and fly on.
