Yesterday I saw this great photo of two Lego jets, the A-6 Intruder and the EA-6B Prowler:
…which reminded me of my halcyon days as an Air Cadet, attending Air Studies1 Camp in Penhold, Alberta. My Air Studies flight2 was named “Prowler Flight” for the EA-6B Prowler, which was the Electronic Warfare version of the A-6 Intruder.
Back then I didn’t think anything of the nomenclature, but now it strikes me as a little… creepy. I have to wonder, is there a plane out there code-named “Stalker”?
