Marine Corps Museum Gets Prowler

Feb 07, 2014 No Comments by

The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum added a new aircraft to its historical ranks Feb. 4 aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif.

Museum personnel welcomed a Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler, the newest addition to the museum’s aircraft display. The aircraft originated from Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 131 aboard Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Wash.

“This aircraft has been a long-time Marine aircraft,” said Clyde Cain, Northrop Grumman employee and volunteer with the museum. “We have been fortunate enough to acquire one for our museum as the military transitions to the EA-18G Growlers.”

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
