By 2010 VAW-115 had amassed eight Battle Efficiency Es, seven AEW Excellence Awards and six Safety Ss. 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.

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.
