Static aircraft displays were dedicated in September, 2007, just outside Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island, and the City of Oak Harbor, Washington. The aircraft display is in recognition of the accomplishments of the men and women who have served at NAS Whidbey Island.
An EA-6B Prowler, BuNo 158036, has the insignia of Electronic Attack Training Squadron (VAQ) 129 Vikings, the only EA-6B training squadron for the Navy and Marine Corps, so every EA-6B pilot has been through that program. The names on the aircraft represent four former VAQ-129 commanding officers who have made lasting impressions on the EA-6B community.
A second aircraft, an A-6 Intruder, BuNo 152907, has the logo for the Attack Squadron (VA) 145 Swordsman. It also bears the name of two members of NAS Whidbey Island who have made their impact on the A-6 community.
