F/A-18E 165536 spent time with VX-31 “Dust Devils” and later VX-23 “Salty Dogs”. In early 2018 this aircraft joined two other F/A-18s for the filming of the movie “Top Gun: Maverick” as a “Hero Jet” for Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. When filming finished it was sent to be converted for duties with the “Blue Angels” aerobatic team. Next the aircraft went to Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 23 (VX-23). On July 27, 2020 165536 was the first F/A-18E to join the “Blue Angels” and received the #1.
