In 1967 former USN WV-2 and WV-3 Constellations were converted for USAF purposes and sent to Korat, Thailand as a component of "Operation Igloo White". These aircraft wore the standard3-tone SEA camouflage schemes but the crew of EC-121R 67-21498 c/n 4496, former USN 143222, with the 553rd RS/553rd RW "Batcat" got creative and added a shark mouth nose art. The EC-121R operated in the Vietnam War from October 1967 until December 1970 when they were replaced by aircraft that were faster and smaller targets.

Lockheed EC-121R Warning Star

Designed to meet Pan Am and TWA requirements for a 40 passenger airliner, the Constellation was first flown in its military version of C69 on January 9th, 1943.
