Still Prowlin’

An EA-6B Prowler from the Cougars of Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 139 catches an arresting gear cable while landing aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan. The EA-6B Prowler is designed for carrier and advanced base operations, providing an umbrella of protection for strike aircraft, ground troops and ships by jamming communications. Ronald Reagan is currently underway participating in Rim of the Pacific 2010, the world's largest multi-national maritime exercise. RIMPAC is a biennial event allowing participating nations to work together and improve interoperability.

  1. Why did we retire the EF-111 and put all our eggs into the EA-6 basket? I always liked the raven over the prowler.

    1. I know what you mean! I lost many a night’s sleep over at RSOI-3 across from one of the DFAC locations.
