McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet- Blue Angels

@San Diego Air & Space Museum

April 2014

This ex-Blue Angel was added to the an Diego Air & Space Museum collection in 2009.  First flown in 1978 as the Northrop YF-17, the design evolved into the F/A-18 and accepted into the Navy in 1983.  In 1986, the Blue Angels adopted the F-18 to replace their aging A-4 Skyhawks.
