US Navy seals E-2 Hawkeye in plastic film for voyage to repair site

US Navy has chosen Mr. Shrinkwrap to provide on-site wrapping services for an E-2 Hawkeye aircraft that had been damaged by an internal electrical fire while stationed at the US Naval Air Facility Atsugi in Japan, the company said.

The E-2 was shrink wrapped to protect it from weather damage during transit on the deck of an aircraft carrier to a repair facility in the United States. The Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye is an all-weather, carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning aircraft.

Two Mr. Shrinkwrap installation experts completed the job over the course of three days. One of the biggest challenges presented by the project was properly wrapping the distinctive saucer-shaped structure mounted on top of the plane.

Mr. Shrinkwrap is a global distributor of shrink film, heat guns, shrink wrap tape, preservation tape, stretch wrap, self-adhering films and shrink wrap supplies, and specializes in providing on-site shrink wrap services and shrink wrap training in a variety of commercial, industrial, residential and agricultural applications.
