July 24, 2013 - Draken International, operator of ex-military fighter aircraft, will display two Douglas A-4K Skyhawks and two Aermacchi MB-339CB jet aircraft at AirVenture 2013.

The aircraft are static displays and will not be performing flight demos, but the public is welcome to view them up close all week on Phillips 66 Plaza. The display will include an information booth, plus pilots and crew will be on hand to answer questions about the formidable fighter jets.

"Although these aircraft are not performing in the air show, we are pleased to be able to make them available for the public to view," said Draken CEO Jared Isaacman. "We invite everyone in to come meet the pilots and maintainers and see these incredible aircraft up close."

The Draken A-4K Skyhawks are the optimal "multirole" platform and are equipped with APG-66 radar, head-up display, hands-on throttle and stick, 1553 digital bus, and radar warning receivers. Draken says the aircraft provide a cost-effective platform for military training.
