As reported by Fox News: The United States Navy has given honor to three pilots who saved a E2-C Hawkeye after a dramatic landing that took the plane right off the edge of the carrier while landing.
The Navy awarded three pilots– Lt. Cmdr. Thomas Browning, Lt. Cmdr. Kellen Smith, and Lt. Matthew Halliwell– from that plane the Armed Forces’ Air Medal in a ceremony aboard the Eisenhower.
The Navy credits the crewmembers with saving the aircraft, which is part of a group called the Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron One Two Three, or VAW-123. They’re also called the Screwtops.
