The Frontiers of Flight Museum will mark the arrival of its latest aircraft, the Northrop Grumman EA-6B “Prowler” BuNo 162228, with a community celebration on Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. to noon. This family-fun event features veteran speakers, photo ops, Q&A with former “Prowler” pilots and crew, refreshments, and activities for kids. Guests are invited to come “prowl” around the Museum and welcome the “Prowler” to her new home! For more information, visit: https://www.flightmuseum.com/ea-6b-prowler-party/.

Lair’s accomplishments include serving as Commanding Officer of the USS AMERICA (CV-66) and Chief of Staff for Commander, USN 6th Fleet.

- Kid’s Activities: Color a “Prowler” mask to wear while you’re prowling around the Museum and create your very own VMAQ-2 Squadron “Jester” hat–just like the one on our “Prowler’s” vertical stabilizer.
