The four Prowlers from Electronic Attack Squadron 134 will return to Whidbey on Saturday after a six-month combat tour in Afghanistan.

VAQ-134 is a land-based expeditionary squadron with three Air Force aircrew assigned from the 388th Electronic Combat Squadron at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Almost 200 sailors and support personnel from the “Garudas” of VAQ-134 came home in mid-September.

The fly-in for the squadron’s four EA-6B Prowlers was originally planned for Sept. 26. The communication- and radar-jamming jets are now expected to arrive in Oak Harbor on Saturday afternoon.
