The dorsal hump houses avionics systems and is not seen on earlier versions of the A-4 Skyhawk. Vets referred to it as the "camel back" or "hump back".

This particular aircraft was stricken from service after being intercepted in flight by a Canada Goose in 1994. Records indicate this Skyhawk was that Canada Goose's only confirmed victory. It is not known if the A-4M Skyhawk strayed into Canadian airspace or not.
