US Navy’s ‘Beyond Repair’ EA-18G Electronic Attack Fighter Returns To Action After Deadly Mid-Air Collision


Recommended Posts

On October 17, an EA-18G Growler assigned to Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 129 successfully performed a functional check flight at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island, according to a statement from the US Navy. 

The service said that the successful flight of the fighter jet marks the completion of a complex transformation process for an aircraft that was declared beyond repair by the US Navy.

On September 14, 2017, the plane, which was then flown by the “Wizards” of VAQ-133, collided with another aircraft belonging to Carrier Air Wing 2 while taking part in a training exercise at NAS Fallon.
