Hello, thank you for visiting our web site. This site is dedicated to all those who served onboard Airborne Early Warning Squadron One (VW-1) the "Typhoon Trackers" and their families, from its inception in 1948 as VPW-1 to its disestablishment in 1971. At that time the men and aircraft where absorbed into VQ-1.

We believe that in every Navy career, whether it be a two - year enlistment or a 30-year career, that at sometime there was one or two duty stations that stood out. For those of us involved with this site and the VW-1 All Hands Alumni Association (All Years, All Ranks and Rates) it was

Nowhere else in our careers did we feel such a sense of accomplishment, more pride in our mission or greater fellowship with our shipmates. We shared a purpose and dedication for what we were doing. In addition, without shame, we truly loved the aircraft that we flew in or helped maintain or supported in some manner. The "Connie". Oh, what memories that name conjures up.

The squadron did not always fly the "Connie" however. in the early years, (1948 until 1952) the aircraft assigned was the PB-1W. We are sure that the men who flew them felt the same way about their aircraft. It would be our wish, as you look through these pages, that you remember good times and old friends.

It is the goal of this site - and the VW-1 All Hands Alumni Association - to rekindle old friendships and revive Memories. We offer the opportunity to make new friends of shipmates who may have served at a different time; yet have the same fondness for the squadron. Finally, we hope to help support one another and our families as time passes.

Please visit the other pages and let the memories flow. When you are done, we hope you will choose to join us. Membership information is located on the "Join Us" Page.

Contributions of your pictures and comments to this site are welcomed, photos must be in jpg, gif, or bitmap formats. Please include your name, the crew and or office/shop, years assigned to VW-1 and a brief description of each photo. E-mail to either address indicated below.

Shipmate, We wish you Fair Winds and Following Seas.
days until the reunion in Myrtle Beach.
