EA-18G Growler

The EA-18G Growler is the replacement for the EA-6 Prowler.  Both birds are electronic warfare aircraft.  The Prowlers had been used for several decades and frequently flew over our house, near Yakima.  The Prowlers have been retired and the replacement, the EA-18G Growlers, have taken over.  Today was the first time I had seen one of these making a touch and go, or, at least simulated touch and go.  The weather has precluded me seeing much in the sky, not to mention I am usually at work when they do fly over.  Today, however, I managed to SEE one AND take a picture, though it was already past by the time I got the camera, but here you go!  Look forward to better shots this summer.

I had to do a little post processing to get detail.
