McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Mission Support Aircraft (NASA)
@Moffett Federal Airfield, Mountain View, CA
Another pre-ISAP image taken at the annual airshow at Moffett Field with my 4MP Nikon Coolpix 4500. NASA operates four F/A-18’s for research support and pilot proficiency. First flown in 1978, the F/A-18 is still in service with close to 1800 built. The US Navy’s Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron have been flying the F/A-18 Hornet since 1986.
