VAW-123 can its beginning to 1945 with the commissioning of VC-12 known as Composite Squadron Twelve. In 1956 VC-12 was re-designated VAW-12 and eventually VAW-123 “Screwtops”. VAW-123 is a Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron based out Naval Air Station Norfolk, Virginia and is an operational fleet squadron equipped with the Northrop E-2C Hawkeye. The E-2C provides radar, radio and satellite communications for the unit it is assigned to operate with. While onboard USS Enterprise the unit provided support for special operation forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Grumman E-2C Hawkeye

Designed as a replacement for the E-1 Tracer, the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye was first flown in 1960. This all-weather tactical Airborne Early Warning aircraft is the only aircraft-carrier capable aircraft to carry a large rotating dome, which houses the antennas for its long-range radars. Used primarily by the US Navy, the E-2 provides surveillance and airborne early warning of anti-ship and enemy aircraft attacks. Sometimes called "The Hummer" because of its distinctive engine sounds, the E-2 is one of only two propeller airplanes that currently operate from aircraft carriers. The E-2 is still undergoing upgrades, with the modern E-2D taking its first flight in August 2007.
