The E-2C Hawkeyes of VAW-117 "The Wallbangers" fly over Laguna Peak inbound for Navy Pt. Mugu on the Southern California coast during the final fly-off after their 2013 deployment onboard the USS Nimi

"I'm a U.S. Navy E-2C Hawkeye aviator, and my squadron is VAW-117, the Wallbangers," says Stephenson. "The squadron spent the majority of 2013 deployed onboard the USS Nimitz. When the carrier returns from deployment, the air wing aircraft fly off and return to their home stations just prior to the carrier pulling into port. I was in the plane at the tail end of this formation as we got our first real look at home in over eight months."
