Grumman E-2C Hawkeye serial 942 is now at the Hatzerim Museum

Unit History


192 Squadron

(192 Tayeset "Ha'Hawkeye" - The Hawkeye Squadron)
Role: Airborne Early Warning

First delivered in mid-1978, the small force of Grumman E-2C Hawkeye AEW aircraft have proved their worth many times over; allowing IDF air, naval and ground forces to be deployed with maximum efficiency and effectiveness. They played a vital role in the air battles with Syria during the Lebanon War of June 1982. Unit identity is 192 Squadron. The E-2Cs were reportedly withdrawn in 1996 and the squadron disbanded, with aircraft 942 appearing at the IDF/AF museum. However, an immaculate looking E-2C was present at the 1998 Flight School Graduation Airshow at Hatzerim, sporting an in-flight refuelling probe, so they obviously continue in use.
