After the decommissioning ceremony of VMAQ-2 on March 8, the only two remaining operational PROWLERS were flown to Frontiers of Flight and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum at Dulles.


Sired from the A-6 Intruder All Weather Attack Aircraft, the EA-6B first deployed in 1972, directly into combat.  162228 will be the end of the PROWLER'S vital Electronic Warfare (EW) 47 year history!

Due the efforts of DFW Tailhookers, the Marine Corps approved flying EA-6B PROWLER BUNO 162228 from VMAQ-2 in Cherry Point, NC to Love Field, Dallas TX on March 12.  Instead of going to the hot sun in Tucson AZ  at Davis Montana AFB Boneyard for storage and scrapping, 162228 will be on display for future generations at Frontiers of Flight.
