Hobby Master 1/72 Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye NF 600/165296, VAW-115, USS Geaorge Washington, 2010 HA4809
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- 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. The early versions of the E-2 were nicknamed the ?Super Fudd? but with the new turboprop engine sound the nickname is ?Hummer?.

VAW-115 ?Liberty Bells? was commissioned on April 20, 1967. In 2008 E-2C Hawkeye 165296 C/N A52-167 was one of the USS Kitty Hawk?s Liberty Bells aircraft that transferred to the USS George Washington. By 2010 VAW-115 had amassed eight Battle Efficiency E?s, seven AEW Excellence Awards and six Safety S?s. In 2010 the Liberty Bells began to receive the newer E-2C Hawkeye 2000. 2012 was a bad year for 165296, on September 4 the port wing was damaged and on December 9 the starboard wing was damaged.
