history

Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron 110 (VAW-110), nicknamed the Firebirds, was an aviation unit of the United States Navy based at Naval Air Station Miramar, California, USA.

It had its beginnings on 20 April 1967 as Replacement Airborne Early Warning Squadron 110 (RVAW-110), which had been formed when VAW-11 was broken into six separate squadrons. In spite of its primary role in training, RVAW-110 acquired operational skills through deployments aboard the aircraft carriers USS Oriskany (CVA-34), USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVA-42), and USS Coral Sea (CVA-43) during the Vietnam War. On 1 May 1983, the squadron was redesignated VAW-110, aligning its designation with its actual mission and capabilities.

In late 1987, VAW-110 began training personnel for the Grumman C-2 Greyhound carrier onboard delivery aircraft. Later it also trained crews for new variants of the E-2C Hawkeye. After more than 27 years of service under two designations, VAW-110 was disestablished on 30 September 1994. Its duties were assumed by Norfolk-based VAW-120.
