Welcome to the Launch the Intruder project! A-6E Intruder, BuNo 159579, Modex 500, was last flown by the Milestones of VA-196 on March 4, 1997. After sitting in disrepair for over 20 years, the Launch the Intruder project was established to save this significant aircraft from the scrap heap and have it professionally transported to Castle Air Museum. The not-to-exceed cost for the professional disassembly, transportation and reassembly on site at Castle Air Museum is $65,000 as quoted by Worldwide Aircraft Recovery, Ltd. http://www.worldwideaircraft.com. Worldwide Aircraft Recovery, Ltd, has a very distinguished history of success with some very significant aircraft.
Castle Air Museum is one of the largest and most distinguished outdoor military aviation museums in the nation and has the infrastructure in place specifically for this aircraft.
