Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series HA4817
Grumman E-2C Hawkeye Diecast Model
USN VAW-120 Greyhawks, 2010

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Grumman E-2C Hawkeye   9.75"   13.5"

In 2010 VAW-120 "Greyhawks" received new E-2D Advanced Hawkeyes as well as C-2A Greyhounds to complement the existing models.. VAW-120 was an Airborne Command and Control Squadron used as a Fleet Replacement Squadron based at Naval Station Norfolk. One E-2C assigned to VAW-120 was 166503 -661 that departed Norfolk on August 31, 2020 for a training flight when something went horribly wrong and the crew were unable to react or correct the problem. The only action left was for the 4 crew to parachute to safety while the aircraft crashed on Wallop Island.

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.
