Photographer's Remark

The EC-121K suffered quite a bit of damage as the result of Hurricane Ivan. Its rudders, flaps, ailerons were damaged and its upper radome blown completely off. A replacement radome was salvaged from Tucson resident EC-121H 53-535 and, with the exception of the ailerons, repairs have been completed.
