Our Mission: To place an A-3 Skywarrior aircraft on static display at the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, as a memorial to those who flew it, those who perished, and those who provided support for the aircraft and its missions. The A-3 and its crews shall not be forgotten.

Important notices:

Important News : The Whidbey A-3 has been moved from the aircraft parking ramp on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island to a temporary location outside the Air Station. This location is very close to the site where the A-3 Skywarrior Whidbey Memorial will be constructed. For the full story about the move, please see the Project Status page of this website

The underground storage tank at the Memorial Site was removed on 26 March. The soil around the tank has been found to be contaminated and it will be necessary for NAS Whidbey Island to clean up the site before construction of the Memorial Site can resume. Please see the Project Status page of this website for additional information.

Our Major Donors

wpe2.jpg (3909 bytes)We, the members of the A-3 Skywarrior Whidbey Memorial Foundation, are pleased and proud to announce that we have received a $15,000 donation from Island Thrift toward completing our A-3 Whidbey Memorial. This, with their previous donation of $10,000, makes this local organization in Oak Harbor, Washington, the single largest contributor to date. Island Thrift is generous and conscientious about supporting local history, Navy and Community activities. It is hoped that when you are in Oak Harbor, whether you live here or just visiting, that you would consider dropping by Island Thrift and either shopping there or donating at their location, and most of all just leaving your thanks for all their support.
