 VA-128 Details

VA-128
 

The Fighting Phoenix of Electronic Attack Squadron ONE TWENTY-EIGHT (VAQ-128) were established during a formal ceremony on October 9, 1997 at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington. Although new to the Prowler community, the Phoenix has a rich history right here at NAS Whidbey Island. Its roots trace firmly back to the A-6 Intruder squadron VA-128, the Golden Intruders. VA-128 served as a gateway for Navy pilots and bombardier/navigators entering the A-6 community for more than 27 years in its operation as a Fleet Training and Replacement Squadron. VA-128 was disestablished in September of 1995
