The McDonnell Douglas CF-18 Hornet (official military designation CF-188) is a Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) variant of the American McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet fighter aircraft. In 1980, the F/A-18 was selected as the winner of the New Fighter Aircraft Project competition and awarded a production order; deliveries of the CF-18 to the Canadian Forces began in 1982. CF-18s have supported North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) air sovereignty patrols and participated in combat during the Gulf War in 1991, the Kosovo War in the late 1990s, and as part of the Canadian contribution to the international Libyan no-fly zone in 2011. CF-18s were also part of the Canadian contribution to the military intervention against ISIL, Operation Impact. Primary Role: Multirole Fighter.
To Commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the fearless air and ground crews, RCAF McDonnell Douglas CF-18A #761 Demonstration Hornet was given a special paint scheme. The upper portion of the aircraft pattern resembles the early 1940s earth tone and dark green camouflage used on Royal Air Force and Commonwealth Hawker Hurricane Mark IIs and Supermarine Spitfires during the Battle of Britain. The tail contains murals of key events and persons related to the BOB. The aircraft will be piloted by Captain Denis “Cheech” Beaulieu.
