    My daughter went there today and took these pics. What was the function of that big blob sitting on top of Prowler's tail? This base has a nice big air show at the end of September, I am thinking of going there http://cherrypointairshow.com/

    It's an EA6B Prowler. 4 seat Pilot, CoPilot, and 2 Antiradar Officers. Jams RADAR and fires Shrike or HARM antiradiation missiles to destroy AAA radar transmitters/sites.

    The missile under the wing looks like a Shrike Vietnam era. It used Sparrow components.
