One of your favorite miniature planes!


The EC-121 is an airborne early warning aircraft manufactured by Lockheed. The WV-2 is the main USN variant.

From 1956 to 1965, WV-2s served in two barrier forces, one off each coast of the North American continent. Its aim was to extend early warning coverage against surprise attack of Soviet bombers and missiles. On September 1965, Barrier Force operations were discontinued, however, Navy EC-121 operations continued until 1975 in four other squadrons. EC-121M was operated by VQ-1 and VQ-2 at NAS Atsugi, Japan and Naval Station Rota, Spain respectively. EC-121M, also known as Rivet Top, is a modified EC-121K and it carried the QRC-248 newly installed in the College Eye aircraft and has electronic interrogators capable of reading two additional Soviet transponders, the SRO-1 and SOD-57. EC-121M's electronics were custom-built. The most important upgrade was the installation of the highly secret Rivet Gym. The EC-121M Rivet Top prototype moved to Korat along with the College Eye Task Force in October 1967 and was scheduled to return to the United States in February 1968 but it remained at Korat until 1969.

The primary users and operators of the EC-121 were the United States Air Force and the United States Navy. There were a total of 232 EC-121s built.
