Atlantic Ocean (April 18, 2005) -- An E-2C+ Hawkeye, assigned to the "Screwtops" of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron One Two Three (VAW-123), lands aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69). The E-2C+ Hawkeye is modified with the eight-bladed NP2000 propeller. The new propeller, made by Hamilton-Sundstrand, increases performance and safety along with better maintenance techniques. Eisenhower is currently underway conducting routine operations in the Atlantic Ocean after a four-year mid-life overhaul.
