The VP-92 Patrol Squadron was formed in 1970 at South Weymouth Naval Air Station, and was originally equipped with P-2 Neptune aircraft. In the 90's it was upgraded with the P-3 Orion. Over the years these aircraft were updated to provide the squadron with high-quality aircraft. In 1995, the Base Realignment and Closure Commission decided to close South Weymouth Naval Air Station and move the squadron to Brunswick Naval Air Station. They relocated in 1996.[2] In 2005, the Base Realignment and Closure Commission decided to close Brunswick Naval Air Station and disestablish VP-92.

Sea Control Squadron TWENTY-FOUR (VS-24) exists to support the accomplishment of the Navy’s missions of forward presence, power projection, sea control, and on-scene crisis response. Specifically, VS-24 provides the operational commander with advanced command and control, surveillance, and battle space dominance. The Scouts accomplish this by ensuring the highest state of readiness and providing an all-weather sea strike and sea control platform that is highly capable in all warfare areas. Sea Control Squadron TWENTY-FOUR is an integral element to the successful execution of Anti-Surface Warfare, Electronic Warfare, Over the Horizon Targeting, Counter Targeting, and Organic Refueling.

The squadron traces its roots to VA-22, the first east coast carrier based ASW squadron. VS-22 was established on May 18, 1960 at Naval Air Station, Quonset Point, Rhode Island, concurrently with the establishment of Carrier Antisubmarine Air Group FIFTY-FOUR. From 1960 until 1974, VS-22 flew the venerable Grumman S-2 "Tracker" best known as the "Stoof." The squadron now flies the sophisticated S-3B "Viking" aircraft built by Lockheed California Company.

 

The "Checkmates" have set the VS community standards since the squadron's inception. The highlight of 1961 was the recovery of America's first astronaut, Alan B. Shepard, after his pioneering space flight on May 5 of that year. In August 1965, VS-22 embarked in USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN for another space capsule recovery, this time Gemini 5 with astronauts Gordon Cooper and "Pete" Conrad. Returning to USS ESSEX, VS-22 participated in the recovery of Apollo 7 with astronauts Shirra, Eisele, and Cunningham.

Sea Control Squadron Thirty remains prepared to conduct sustained combat operations from aircraft carriers in any environment to support National Command Authority objectives as promulgated by the Battle Group Commander, the Battle Group Strike Warfare Commander, and the Battle Group Sea Combat Commander. In the ever evolving world of naval aviation, VS-30 has helped keep the S-3B Viking on the cutting edge. They have accomplished this by adapting to a changing enemy threat and incorporating new weapons and technology.

 

During the post World War II years, TBM Avenger squadron VC-801 served as a component of the demobilized reserve Carrier ASW forces. On 1 August 1950, VC-801 was re-designated VS-801 at Miami, Florida, with 18 TBM-3E Avengers. The squadron was recalled to active duty on 1 February 1951 due to the military mobilization associated with the outbreak of the Korean War and moved its home station to NAS Norfolk, Virginia. In February of 1952, the squadron received its first AF-2S and AF-2W "Guardian" aircraft to replace the aging Avenger.

The "Fighting Escargots" (a reference to the blazingly fast top speed of the E-2C Hawkeye) of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron SEVEN EIGHT, (VAW-78), was commissioned in July 1970 at NAS Norfolk, Virginia as a component of Anti-Submarine Group Reserve SEVENTY. The squadron initially operated the E-1B "TRACER" aircraft.

 

In September of 1975, VAW-78 became a component of Carrier Air Wing Reserve TWENTY. Two years later, the squadron transitioned to the E-2B "Hawkeye" aircraft. During March 1983, the first E-2C "Hawkeye" was introduced to the squadron and remains in use today. This milestone marked the first current tactical fleet aircraft to be utilized in the Naval Air Reserve.

With improved electronic support measures equipment, the Harpoon anti-ship missile, and the most advanced airborne imaging radar in the fleet, the Blue Wolves and the S-3B, have evolved as a formidable sea strike asset that will lead the carrier air wing and the battle group into the 21st Century.

 

The Operations Department is responsible for planning, coordinating, and scheduling the operations of the Squadron and all it's assigned aircraft. The Administration Department is responsible for the maintenance of officer and enlisted personnel records, administration, the accountability of Squadron correspondence and the legal and public affairs of all squadron members. The Maintenance Department is responsible for the effective and efficient repair and upkeep of all squadron aircraft in order to maintain maximum readiness. The Safety Department coordinates the squadron safety program which is responsible for the protection of all squadron assets concerning aviation, maintenance, motor vehicles, and flight crew training and evaluation records. The Tactics and Training Departments are responsible for developing and implementing the squadron's turn-around training plan and continuing the development of tactical innovations. The Training Department works closely with each of the other Departments to ensure scheduled training is conducted and when needed, school quotas are obtained and orders are provided. The Tactics Department supports squadron tactical readiness by developing and maintaining the squadron shore- based training plans; conducting both periodic and event-specific tactical training; developing and analyzing new tactics; planning and analyzing air wing, battle group, and other exercises; and encouraging and assisting in the submission of new tactics and concepts.

 

Commissioned on 03 January 1961, the “Boomerangs” of VS-35 operated eleven S2F-1 aircraft while awaiting introduction of the new S2F-3 Tracker. By June 1961, VS-35 received it’s first S2F-3 at NAS North Island and the fledgling squadron saw its first deployment the following year on board the USS HORNET (CVS-12). In 1963, VS-35 deployed for a second time on board HORNET and won the ASW “A” and the Air Operations “E” awards for performance excellence.
