McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet- Blue Angels
@ Marine Corp Base Hawaii, Kaneohe, HI
Taken during the Kaneohe Bay Airshow, the Blue Angel lineup basks in the tropical sunlight as they await their turn to perform. First formed in 1946, the Blue Angels have been using the F/A-18 Hornet since 1986. These are usually the oldest jets in the fleet that have been taken out of frontline combat strike units as newer models are delivered.
