Boeing EA-18G Growler
@Naval Air Facility El Centro, CA
Among the aircraft practicing landings at El Centro is this Growler from Electronic Attack Squadron 129 (VAQ-129), the only EA-18G Growler training squadron in the Navy. This was one of the few photos I got with the afterburners in use, how I would’ve loved to see this after the sunset. The EA-18G Growler is an electronic warfare version of the two-seat F/A-18F Hornet, which entered production in 2007. The Growler has replaced the Navy’s EA-6B Prowler which was retired in 2015.
