The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now part of Boeing) and Northrop (now part of Northrop Grumman), the F/A-18 was designed to be a highly versatile aircraft due to its avionics, cockpit displays, and excellent aerodynamic characteristics, with the ability to carry a wide variety of weapons. The aircraft can perform fighter escort, fleet air defense, suppression of enemy air defenses, air interdiction, close air support, and aerial reconnaissance. Primary Role: Multirole Fighter.

VA-127 was established in 1962 and became VFA-127 on March 1, 1987. In the beginning the unit was known as “Royal Blues”, nicknamed “Batmen” but in 1981 they became “Cylons”. VFA-127 was designated as the Navy aggressor squadron. VFA-127 called NAS Fallon home from October 1, 1987 until March 23, 1996 when they were disestablished. VFA-127 operated the F/A-18A/B Hornet from March 1992 until dissolution in 1996. The excess aircraft were sent to other units or sold to other countries. 162416 was sold to Spain in 1995 and became C.15-75.
