Navy grounds Super Hornets, Growlers

周六美国海军紧急宣布,停飞所有F/A-18E/F“超级大黄蜂”和同一平台的EA-18G“咆哮者”

当地时间周五上午1100在普吉特海湾的Whidbey基地发生一起细节保密的突发事故,两名E/A-18G飞行员受伤,据说跟舱盖有关。据说原因跟原始设计或操作流程缺陷有关,两种主力战机全部停飞,前一段时间F-18暂时停飞,接踵而来真是罕见。这是天亡我美利坚海航么?


The Navy temporarily grounded its fleet of F/A-18 E/F/ Super Hornets and E/A-18G Growlers following what officials call an “on-deck emergency” Friday morning in western Washington.

A Navy Growler assigned to Electronic Attack Squadron 132 — the “Scorpions” — was damaged and both of its aircrew suffered unspecified injuries during the incident that occurred at the Whidbey Island air station on Puget Sound around 11 a.m. Friday, according to a Navy statement released before dawn on Saturday.

A Whidbey Island search and rescue helicopter raced them to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for evaluation. Because the advanced Boeing Super Hornets and Growlers rely on common aircraft systems, Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker — commander of Naval Air Forces on North Island — temporarily suspended flight operations for both types of jets.

Exceptions, however, will be made “on a case-by-case basis dependent upon operational requirements,” according to the statement.

Boeing engineers and Naval Air Systems Command are probing the cause of the incident.

A two-seat version of the Super Hornet, the carrier-based Growler is an electronic warfare aircraft that began replacing Northrop Grumman’s EA-6B Prowlers in 2009.  

Flying alongside Super Hornet multirole fighters, it can jam enemy signals, fool radar systems and detect incoming missiles.

The temporary pause on Growler and Super Hornet operations will not affect squadrons in the San Diego area.
