The SCREWTOP family has an amazing legacy. Over the course of the last 47 years, the "SCREWTOP" name has become synonymous with tactical excellence. Few symbols in Naval Aviation are as recognizable as the "all-seeing eye" and the "dome swirl". We uphold the high standards that have become the hallmark of this warfighting unit by hitting the numbers safely the first time, every time. No shortcuts! No exceptions!
