18 May 11. After the nation marked 100 years of naval aviation on May 8, 2011, Northrop Grumman Corporation is proud to announce its exclusive sponsorship of FLY NAVY: Celebrating the First Century of Naval Aviation, a tribute to the Centennial of Naval Aviation and the men and women of today’s naval aviation community. Readers of the 372-page, full-color book, featuring over 700 photos, can experience the excitement, power, motion and beauty of naval aviation through the lens of preeminent photographer Erik Hildebrandt, a Long Island native now residing in Minnesota. For the past two years, Hildebrandt has traveled the globe documenting the vast universe of modern naval aviation. He has flown with deployed forces over war-torn Afghanistan, through the tranquil skies over Hawaii with the Blue Angels, and practically everywhere in between. FLY NAVY is his unprecedented historic record of the Navy’s men and women hard at work on the eve of this year’s centennial celebration. In FLY NAVY, Hildebrandt showcases manned and unmanned aircraft flown by the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard including Northrop Grumman’s E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, E-2C Hawkeye, C-2 Greyhound, F-5 Tiger, MQ-4 Broad Area Maritime System Demonstrator (BAMS-D), EA-6B Prowler, F-5 Tiger, the now retired F-14 Tomcat, as well as the Navy’s EA-18G Growler and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Essays and artwork from such iconic figures as Barrett Tillman, Sergei Sikorsky, Robert “Hoot” Gibson and Hank Caruso are featured as well as a special tribute to the men, women and aircraft of Grumman Ironworks, co-authored by Leroy Grumman’s son, David, and veteran retired Northrop Grumman public relations professional John Vosilla. Over its 80-year history, Northrop Grumman has delivered over 26,300 aircraft to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
“We’re honored to be the exclusive sponsor of Erik’s one-of-a-kind project especially as we join with the naval aviation community to celebrate the first 100 years of naval aviation, and work to advance the next 100 years,” said Gary Ervin, president of Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. “It’s a spectacular book with amazing photos and compelling narrative.”
FLY NAVY gives readers both a sneak peek inside the cockpit of some of the world’s most advanced aircraft and insider access into the minds of those who spent their careers catapulting from a perfectly good ship into the unknown sky above.
“Our military, and the Navy specifically, is in the midst of a technological transformation unlike anyone has ever seen in modern times. FLY NAVY is a celebration
