USN VA-72 Blue Hawks, AC401, USS John F. Kennedy, Operation Desert Storm 1991


US Navy Attack Squadron 72 (VA-72) Blue Hawks was the new designation given to VF-72 on January 3rd, 1956. The squadron transitioned from the F9F Panther to the A-4 Skyhawk before upgrading to the A-7 Corsair II in January, 1970. The Blue Hawks deployed many times with the A-7 on various Nimitz class carriers. The squadron's final deployment was aboard the USS John F. Kennedy in 1991 and flew combat missions during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After returning from the Gulf, the squadron was disestablished on June 30th, 1991.

Upon return to the US, aircraft #AC400 had several "Camel" symbols painted below the canopy rail, indicating the number of missions flown during Operation Desert Storm.
