The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic twin engine all-weather
night fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18s first flew in November 1978 and the first
production flight on April 12, 1980. The first 380 aircraft were F/A-18As and in September
1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat aircraft while B
and D are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases
with the capability of in flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.
To commemorate the Centennial of Naval Aviation (CoNA) in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps
and Coast Guard several aircraft have been given special paint schemes. F-18C 163733
from VFA-122 based at NAS Lemoore in California has been given a three-tone blue/grey
scheme. This tricolor finish represents that of a WWII carrier based Hellcat unit from 1943 –
1944. In 1911 the first aircraft ever landed on a ship and the first hydro-aeroplane was
demonstrated creating an interest in naval aviation.
