I'm assisting in organizing an Aviation Open House, and we are searching for an A-7 Corsair 2. The only examples we can find are static ground displays, none of which can be easily transported. As of today, are there any air-worthy A-7 Corsair 2s in existence?

Based on the internet searching I did it doesn't look very promising.

List of surviving A-7 Corsair IIs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_surviving_LTV_A-7_Corsair_IIs

It looks like Greece flew the last ones, retiring the last one in October 2014. I have no way to see what they did with them after retirement. https://theaviationist.com/2014/10/27/haf-retirement-a-7/

I don't know how current the info is at this site: https://www.planelogger.com/Aircraft/ConstructionList/A-7

It lists ZERO A-7s in the Hellenic Air Force fleet (not even showing any as being stored): https://www.planelogger.com/Airline/Fleet/Hellenic_Air_Force/172406

I just searched David Monthan AFB in Tuscon on Google Maps to see if there are any A-7s because of this photo: https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Navy/LTV-A-7E-Corsair-II/2446637
and do not see any A-7s stored outside there.

That's all I can figure out on the internet. Hopefully someone who has more specific knowledge will come along (I'm not a warbird expert by any means).
