EA-18 Growler Cruise Videos

The EA-18 Growler is the US Navy’s current electronic warfare aircraft. The aircraft first came to the fleet in 2009 and replaced the EA-6B Prowler. If the aircraft looks familiar, it should. The primary design has its origins in the F/A-18F Super Hornet, the fleet’s current fighter/bomber. All of the Growlers are based at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington.

In addition to the United States Navy, the Royal Australian Air Force has purchased and deployed Growlers.
