Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet
@ Travis Air Force Base, Fairfield, CA
I like afterburner shots, but they can be challenging since they are typically accelerating away from you and aren’t that close to the flightline when they start the turn. Here a Super Hornet performs a tactical demo during the 2017 Wings Over Solano airshow. Compared to the C/D version of the Hornet, this aircraft’s wing is 25% bigger, has 33% more fuel, 41% better mission range, 35% more thrust, and 50% more endurance. First flown in 1995, 500 Super Hornets have been delivered to the U.S. Navy and Royal Australian Air Force. Nikon D500 w/ Tamron 150-600mm, processed with Aperture.
