In 2007 VAW-116 Sun Kings were assigned to the USS Abraham Lincoln and stationed at NAS Norfolk. The squadron mascot is Elvis Presley and several of the aircraft bear the names of Elvis, Priscilla, Lisa Marie and Graceland. Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye 165817 was the CAG aircraft while with VAW-116 before transferring to VAW-115 Liberty Bells. VAW-115 took part in all the Mid-East conflicts from Operation Desert Shield to Inherent Resolve. VAW-115 E-2s completed the eight-bladed New Propeller 2000 system (NP2K) upgrade in March 2007.

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.
