watch video of last flight of 162228 "going home"

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.
