In late 1966 the Navy ordered a variant of the Grumman Gulfstream, the TC-4C Academe. The TC-4C was equipped for bombadier/navigator training for the A-6 Intruder and was first flown on 14 June 1967. On the photo below the A-6 nose dome is clearly visible!
Another variant, the VC-4A was in use with the US Coast Guard as an executive transport aircraft.
