Boeing Delivers 100th Navy Growler

Boeing Delivers 100th Navy Growler

The U.S. Navy formally took delivery of the 100th Boeing EA-18G Growler during an elaborate Monday ceremony in which the company stumped for Congress to buy beyond the Navy’s current program of record of 138 aircraft.

The Navy submitted a request to the Congress to purchase 22 additional jets in its unfunded priorities list earlier this year.

If the company does not secure more orders for the EA-18G in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 budget, the production line for the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet — from which the Growler is derived — will shutdown in 2016, company officials said.
