I was at NAS Alameda from '85 - '89, onboard Carl Vinson. I'll have to dig up some pictures and scan 'em for you.

Last night (Feb 24, 2008) high winds blew the A-4 off of its mount. See the pics.

LOL. They finally restored this plane after it had been blown off the pedestal three years ago (see pics). They asked the city not to water near the pedestal the night before they remounted the plan so the ground would not be soggy. So the city didn't water... around the Corsair at the other end of the base. The crew showed up, erected the crane, lifted the plane, and the crane sunk into the soggy ground and dropped the plane and broke of a wing and crushed part of the body.
