WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. (April 9, 2007) - An EA-18G Growler lands at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island for the first time. The Growler is being developed to replace the fleet's current carrier-based EA-6B Prowler. The next-generation electronic attack aircraft for the U.S. Navy, combines the combat-proven F/A-18 Super Hornet with state-of-the-art electronic warfare avionics. The EA-18G is expected to enter initial operational capability in 2009. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Bruce McVicar (RELEASED)
