North American A-5/RA-5 Vigilante series






Last updated on: November 15, 2016

156 total Vigilantes were built, bringing coolness back to carrier decks for many years. Below are all of them in order of Bureau Numbers, including the recon variants.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
