Blue Angels A-4 Skyhawk "smoke pipe" location...

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any photos of the "smoke pipe" on the BA's A-4 Skyhawk? All of the photo's I found only show the front of the aircraft, but not the tail/exhaust where the "smoke pipe" is located.

Where is this pipe and what does it look like?

There's a previous thread that covers this and several other Blue Angels Skyhawk details. Short answer to your question is that the paraffin injection system has a small "wick" that protrudes from the top center of the "sugar scoop" fairing - photo in the thread linked below.
