Welcome to Warbird Wednesday! Today we’re joined by two special guests from the Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake as we visit the EA-18G Growler.

This Airborne Electronic Attack aircraft combines the latest electronic attack technology including jamming pods, communication countermeasures, and satellite communications. Being a derivative of the F-18, this EA-18 Growler retains multi-mission capabilities and can perform a wide range of enemy defense suppression missions.
