I love this photo. Do I have to give a reason?

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 11, 2011:
Actually no... The "silver edges" are the normal color of the leading edges of each blade, while the black parts are the expanding de-icing boots.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon February 28, 2011:
Those "silver edges" are a part of the de-icing system!

What is the purpose of the hawkeye?

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 28, 2009:
I like how the edges of the blades are silver colored, makes them look really like blades of a knife

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 22, 2009:

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 11, 2007:

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu November 29, 2007:

Excellent!

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 21, 2005:
Good prospective shot nice balance of shapes. They flow well together

A visitor from Chile posted Wed October 19, 2005:
Apart of the great evolution of the Hawkeye, what an evolution for the old Hamilton Standards and the propeller aviation in general. Great Front Shot!

A visitor from France posted Tue October 18, 2005:
Great picture. Nice paintjob on the nose and on the side of the fuselage with the American flag.

A visitor from Germany posted Mon October 17, 2005:
The 8-blade arrangement is due to eliminate resonance effect and as such to reduce vibrations..

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 16, 2005:
This photo is a real education for anyone who has not seen this bird with 8 blade props before. An excellent photo; great color, light and clarity. Well framed and focused.

I wonder exactly what it does for the aircraft?

A visitor from Mexico posted Sun October 16, 2005:
Captures the unique propeller arrangement and the special markings on the nose. A very special aircraft!! Shot is very well framed.

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 16, 2005:
I flew on the ol' E-2A with BIG 4-bladed props, but this one is a real meat grinder! By the way, the Grumman E-2 design is 45 years old and from the looks of this bird, still going strong!

A visitor from Germany posted Sat October 15, 2005:
Now those are some powerful looking blades!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat October 15, 2005:
I never knew the Hawkeye had 8 bladed propellors,wow.
It's a cool airplane by the way.
