The Northrop E-2 Hawkeye is an all-weather airborne early warning aircraft (AEW). The E-2 was
a twin-turboprop developed in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s for the USN. The E-2 is a carrier-
capable aircraft and has received major upgrades in their electronics for the E-2B and E-2C with
the E-2C also receiving improved turbo-prop engines. The E-2 has been in production since the
1960’s making it the longest production run of any carrier based aircraft. The E-2C variant
became operational in 1973.

VAW-126 Seahawks were established in 1969 with a home base at Naval Air Station Norfolk,
Virginia equipped with the E-2A Hawkeye. Over time their equipment has been upgraded to the E-
2B, E-2C, E-2C Hawkeye 2000 (HE2K) and the E-2C+ Group II and E-2C 164496 MSN A-159
received an 8-blade propeller. Previous to flying with VAW-126 E-2C 164496 flew with VAW-120,
Vaw-124 and VAW-121. The aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman made its maiden voyage with
VAW-126 assigned to it and they have been together ever since.
