The McDonnell Douglas Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet is a twin-engine multi-role carrier-based aircraft. The “E” variant is single-seater while the “F” variant is a tandem-seat configuration. The “E” is a much larger, more advanced and more capable variant of the F/A-18C. 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.
On April 27, 2020 the USS Nimitz along with VFA-94 “Mighty Shrikes” as well as other squadrons left for what would become the longest deployment since the Vietnam War; 321 days. During the deployment they sailed the Western Pacific, North Arabian Sea and the Arabian Gulf before returning home in February 2021. In August 2015 VFA-94 flew their last flight in their F/A-18C aircraft and began to transition to the two-seat F/A-18F. One of the VFA-94 aircraft was F/A-18F 168929 msn F-275 and became the CAG aircraft.
