US military members from the 908th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron refuel a USMC EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft on a KC-10 Extender during an air refueling mission.
The Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler is a twin-engine, four-seat, mid-wing electronic warfare aircraft. The aircraft has been in service with the U.S. Armed Forces since 1971. It has carried out numerous missions for jamming enemy radar systems, and in gathering radio intelligence on those and other enemy air defense systems. An EA-6B aircrew consists of one pilot and three Electronic Countermeasures Officers, though it is not uncommon for only two ECMOs to be used on missions.
