U.S. Navy EA-18G Growler

The EA-18G Growler is the specialized version of the F/A-18F Super Hornet for Electronic Warfare (EW) and Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD), which replaced the aging EA-6B Prowlers.

Its most distinguishable features are the special wingtips housing the AN/ALQ-218 wideband receivers and the AN/ALQ-99 tactical jamming pods, which will soon be replaced by the new Next-Gen Jammer.


The Pikes Peak Regional Airshow supports three museums in Colorado Springs—The Ft. Carson 4th Infantry Museum, The Peterson Air and Space Museum and The National Museum of WWII Aviation. These unique institutions are dedicated to the education of future generations through the preservation of our nation’s military heritage.
