In 2006 the second built EA-18G Growler, #166856, made its first flight and was then delivered to China Lake wearing a basic grey paint with the markings NJ VAQ-129 numbered 552. Not long after the aircraft was transferred to VX-9 Air Test Evaluation Squadron Nine, (AIRTEVRON NINE) more commonly known as Vampires and in August 2008 was given a new paint scheme and wearing XE-572. On November 17, 2008 the air craft had an engine fire and landed safely.

To replace their aging EA-6B Prowlers, the United States Navy acquired a specialized variant of the F/A-18 Super Hornet, the EA-18G Growler. The Growler is an advanced airborne electronic attack aircraft capable of tactical jamming and electronic protection. The Growler was first flown in August 2006 with the first production aircraft being delivered to VAQ-129 in June 2008. After operational capability testing, full production of the EA-18G Growler began in late 2009. In 2010 VAQ-132, 138 and 141 were re-equipped with the Growler.
