McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet

@ Lancaster, CA

March 2017

In the high desert of California is the city of Lancaster which is also the home of the Jayhawks minor league baseball team.  The team has a stadium with this gate guard.  This retired NASA aircraft was the 13th F/A-18 to be built, and used for developmental testing by the Navy.  It was then flown as a mission support aircraft by NASA’s Dryden – now Armstrong — Flight Research Center from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s when it was retired. The aircraft is on long-term loan to the City of Lancaster for exhibit.  Nikon D500 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture.
