In March 2011 an uprising began in Libya against the government of Muammar al Qadhafi. To protect civilians from air strikes and heavy military retaliations the UN issued UNSCRs 1970 and UNSCR 1973 authorizing International Forces to protect the civilian population and enforce an arms embargo while maintaining a No-Fly Zone. As part of Operation Odyssey Dawn five VAQ-132 Scorpions EA-18G Growlers moved from Iraq to Aviano AB in Italy to help fulfill the UN resolutions. EA-18G growler 166894 was the CAG aircraft during OOD.

Boeing EA-18G Growler

Designed as a replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk and the A-7 Corsair II and as a complement to the F-14 Tomcat, the F/A-18 first flew on November 18, 1978. Perhaps best known as the aircraft of the US Navy's Blue Angels, this carrier-capable, supersonic, all-weather fighter has many roles, including fighter escort, fleet air defense and close air support. The F/A-18 is a versatile aircraft: it can operate from carriers or land bases and a single switch converts it from fighter to strike mode. During Operation Desert Storm, the F/A-18 proved that, on a single mission, one aircraft could serve as both fighter and a bomber.
