Windy conditions kept the Douglas A-4C Skyhawk from taking to the skies over Titusville Thursday for a training flight.
The Vietnam-era Navy attack jet was hit during the war and the pilot was able to get back to an aircraft carrier.
The airplane was reassembled using spare parts. It now looks as it did when it was built in 1962 and was able to reach speeds of up to 600 miles per hour.
"I flew the A-4 in the Navy," said Capt. Dave Dollarhide, a pilot. "That was 40 years ago. And it's a thrill for me to be back flying this airplane."
Dollarhide said people are intrigued by this airplane because it's been obsolete for quite some time.
