Hello everyone! I am an aviation researcher from Brazil with some articles published (you can see one of them here:http://www.laahs.com/artman/publish/article_220.shtml)and currently I am working on a book about all AEW/AWACS platforms ever built. This way, I would like to obtain from those who had closed contact with Grumman E-1A and or B any information about its electronic suite. Not performance data, designations would be enough. I will be very pleased to give full credits for any colaboration which should be sent to the following email address: sergioricardosc277@hotmail.com THANKS IN ADVANCE!
(the text above IS NOT A SPAM, I have sent it to the E-2A and B sections, as well)
