Passing through

What is this weird looking Navy plane, and why is it hanging around Cheyenne’s Airport?

Legend AeroServe Office Manager JoAnn Nevarez tells the Cheyenne Minuteman that this Navy plane made a brief refueling stop in Cheyenne on its way across country.

According to The E-2C Hawkeye is the U.S. Navy’s primary carrier-based airborne early warning and command and control aircraft. The twin turboprop Hawkeye shares its basic airframe with the C-2 Greyhound but is fitted with a 24-foot rotating radome housing an APS-145 (some have the APS-139 radar).
