We’re not done with VAQ-141 just yet, so today we’re continuing with the next part of the Shadowhawks cruise video. As Part 1 ended we rode along in the cockpit of a Growler recovering to the boat, and we start off Part 2 by going right back into the seat, readying to launch off the USS George H.W. Bush during the maiden cruise of the EA-18G.
It’s 11 more minutes of vapor flowing, flare popping, afterburning Growler awesomeness for your viewing pleasure.
The Shadowhawks even make fine work of tanking from USAF KC-135s, which we’ve heard is the favorite of our Naval aviators. Our coalition partners even make it into the mix, with some beautiful dusk footage of a Royal Air Force Tornado in burner while plugged into the tanker.
Before you trap back aboard the Bush, keep an eye out for my personal favorite part, a 3-ship of Growlers in burner!
