On October 1, 1968 VAW-125 was commissioned as the "Torch Bearers" but eventually was changed to "Tiger Tails". Based at NAS Norfolk they became the first east coast squadron to fly the E-2B Hawkeyes and was assigned to Carrier Air Wing Three (CVW-3) aboard USS Saratoga. In 1975 VAW-125 upgraded their Hawkeyes to the E-2C version. In 2003 the Tiger Tails once again upgraded this time to the E-2C 2000 and in 2014 they received the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye. In 2009 E-2C 163536 c/n A52-124 was the VAW-125 CAG aircraft.

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.
