About the Aircraft

The F/A-18 Hornet is active as a main fighter not only in the US Navy but also in other countries around the world. The Royal Australian Air Force has been operating the first mass-produced A/B type since 1984. In 2021 the F-35A Lightning II took over the role, and the F/A-18 Hornet was retired. In commemoration of the retirement, the 75th Squadron (75SQ) applied special painting to its F/A-18 Hornet (A21-19). The coloring with the motif of the magpie, which is the mascot mark of the unit, gained popularity among many fans.
