I flew on these NATO planes for 3 years from 86-89, Squadron 2.  No doubt I've flown on this one as well.

Why are they retiring this aircraft? I never expected to see E-3 at AMARG, especially a NATO aircraft. Is this the only one or are there more in storage now?

I still remember babysitting these planes while stationed in Iceland, they would rotate every 10 or 12 hours. Always had one up looking for Russian bears flying into the area between Greenland straight and the Denmark straight. This was in 1985.

I lived in Tucson, AZ. They will take good care of her!  She will be used shortly....Russian ships, almost 2, 000 are off the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific.

i was under the impression that we don't share that technology with anyone so why are they going to let it just sit there and not destroy it immediately for security reasons
