McDonnell Douglas US Navy F/A-18E/F Super Hornet Fighter
The twin tailed McDonnell Douglas F-18 Hornet fighter was entered into the same competition as the single tailed Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter for the replacement USAF all round fighter competition in the 1970’s. The Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon won the contract but the US Navy preferred the F-18. It first flew in November 1978 and entered service January 1983. You will see this aircraft referred to as the F-18 and the FA-18. F is for the fighter variant and the letter A is for the ground attack variant. The two roles were combined resulting in the multi-mission FA-18 variant. In the mid-1980’s it replaced the A-7 Corsair and F-4 Phantom II of the US Marine Corps and US Navy. McDonnell Douglas F-18 Hornet is in service with United States US Marine Corps, US Navy and NASA, Royal Australian Air Force, Schweizer Luftwaffe Swiss Air Force, Spain Ejército del Aire Española Spanish Air Force, anadian Armed Forces, Air Command, Finland Suomen Ilmavoimat Finnish Air Force, al-Quwwat al-Jawwiya al-Kuwaitiya Kuwaiti Air Force and Malaysia Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia Royal Malaysian Air Force.
A larger version of the of the FA18 Hornet has been designated F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and is replacing all the aging supercarrier Grumman F-14 Tomcat Naval air superiority fleet defense attack fighters and the earlier F-18 Hornets. The McDonnell Douglas F-18E Super Hornet is the single manned air superiority fleet defense variant and the F-18F variant is the double manned attack variant with a pilot and weapon systems officer.
