VAW-122 was established April 1, 1967 and named the Hummer Gators. The Squadron spent the next nine months aboard the USS America (CV-66) and became the first East Coast E-2 Squadron and later were assigned the call-sign Steeljaws. The squadron traveled the world north to south and east to west providing support for Middle East operations and drug interdiction elsewhere. On July 8, 1991 on board the USS Forrestal E-2C 161343 AE-601 was lost to an onboard fire immediately after a catapult shot. All five crew members safely bailed out.

Grumman E-2C Hawkeye

Designed as a replacement for the E-1 Tracer, the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye was first flown in 1960. This all-weather tactical Airborne Early Warning aircraft is the only aircraft-carrier capable aircraft to carry a large rotating dome, which houses the antennas for its long-range radars. Used primarily by the US Navy, the E-2 provides surveillance and airborne early warning of anti-ship and enemy aircraft attacks. Sometimes called "The Hummer" because of its distinctive engine sounds, the E-2 is one of only two propeller airplanes that currently operate from aircraft carriers. The E-2 is still undergoing upgrades, with the modern E-2D taking its first flight in August 2007.
