Aircraft of Carrier Air Wing 8 (1)

It's no secret that I am fascinated by US Navy aircraft and they feature heavily in my collection of models. A few years ago I started building models of aircraft that served with Carrier Air Wing 8 aboard USS Enterprise in 2001. Only now have I reached the point where the collection is more-or-less complete and to a standard where I am happy with them, with brick-built canopies instead of non-LEGO ones.

 

This photograph represents most of the aircraft types that served with Carrier Wing 8. The aircraft are, from left to right, front to back:

F-14A Tomcat of VF-14 Tophatters

F/A-18C Hornet of VFA-15 Valions

EA-6B Prowler of VAQ-141 Shadowhawks

S-3B Viking of VS-24 Scouts

E-2C Hawkeye of VAW-124 Bear Aces

SH-60F Seahawk of HS-3 Tridents.
