FPP099 - E-2 Hawkeye
Situational awareness is a precious commodity, especially in armed conflict where the fog of war invariably confuses and distracts commanders. Dedicated aerial platforms are vital to collecting the information needed to ensure warfighters have as accurate a sense of the real world as possible. For Naval Aviation, the key enabler in this regard is the Northrop Grumman ( ) E-2 Hawkeye. ( ) On this episode, former U.S. Navy ( ) lieutenant commander and Hawkeye test pilot Jonathan "Gersh" Ulbricht joins us to describe the longest consecutively serving carrier-based airplane in Navy history. And since so much of this platform's mission is based not on the pilots up front but on the flight officers inside, our former Air Intercept Communications episode 31 ( ) guest, now-Captain Alan Schiaffino returns to help us understand the Hawkeye from an NFO's perspective. Listener questions include when we might cover the B-36 Peacemaker, fighter pilot fitness, and why the F-14 Tomcat uses spoilers in lieu of ailerons.
