Introduced in 1964, the E-2 Hawkeye — also known as the "Super Fudd" — is a uniquely shaped airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. Over the years, it has received a series of upgrades and remains in both service and production today with a price-tag of nearly $200 million per unit. The Hawkeye is primarily used by the U.S. Navy, but has been featured in nine national militaries. It has also been the aircraft of the VAW-115 "Liberty Bells" — the only forward deployed airborne early warning squadron — since 1970.
An Air Force 1 reproduction of an E-2C Hawkeye flying with the "Liberty Bells" in 2015, this 1/72 scale, die cast replica — an immediate showcase centerpiece — features that aircraft's signature green accents, engraved panel lines, a glazed canopy, rotating propellers, optional-position landing gear, and authentic markings. Arrives ready to display on the included presentation stand. Measures approximately 9¾" long with a 13½" wingspan. Shipping TBD.
