The Boeing F/A-18E and F/A-18F Super Hornet are twin-engine, carrier-capable, multirole fighter aircraft variants based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The F/A-18E single-seat and F/A-18F tandem-seat variants are larger and more advanced derivatives of the F/A-18C and D Hornet. The Super variant can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the carrier while still carrying unspent munitions, a big savings in dollars. The first F/A-18E flight was in 1995 and began delivery to the USN in 1999. Primary Role: Carrier-Based Multirole Fighter.
In 2021 the Blue Angels flight demonstration team celebrated their 75th Anniversary. They were established in 1946 as a means to increase interest in naval aviation among the general public, as well as boost Navy morale. The first display was held on June 15, 1946 at Jacksonville, Florida. The Blue Angels are the second oldest flight demonstration team after the French Patrouille de France established in 1931. F/A-18F 165679 MSN 1516/F018 formerly with VFA-122 is the youngest ôFö model assigned to the Blue Angels. This aircraft has also been seen wearing #4.
