The McDonnell Douglas Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet is a twin-engine multi-role carrier-based
aircraft. The “E” variant is single-seater while the “F” variant is a tandem-seat configuration. The
“E” is a much larger, more advanced and more capable variant of the F/A-18C. The Super variant
can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the
carrier while still carrying unspent munitions, a big savings in dollars. The first F/A-18E flight was
in 1995 and began delivery to the USN in 1999.

transferred to VFA-146 “Blue Diamonds” as NH-302. In 2020 165666 became part of the USN
“Blue Angels” Demo Team. In January 2021 the aircraft wore the number 3 but in February the
number was changed to 1. 2021 will mark the 75th Anniversary of the “Blue Angels”.
