Postage Stamp Planes 5338-1
McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet Diecast Model
USN Blue Angels, #1

1:150 Scale   Length   Width
McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet   4.5"   3"

This super war plane could bomb a target from a carrier deck and then engage in a dog fight. The F/A 18C was the first modern jet intended for land and air duties. The Hornet is capable of speeds to 1180 mph with a 15,400 Ib weapon load. Only capable of a range of 400+ miles, this was the only shortcoming of this otherwise great fighting jet.

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet

Designed as a replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk and the A-7 Corsair II and as a complement to the F-14 Tomcat, the F/A-18 first flew on November 18, 1978. Perhaps best known as the aircraft of the US Navy's Blue Angels, this carrier-capable, supersonic, all-weather fighter has many roles, including fighter escort, fleet air defense and close air support. The F/A-18 is a versatile aircraft: it can operate from carriers or land bases and a single switch converts it from fighter to strike mode. During Operation Desert Storm, the F/A-18 proved that, on a single mission, one aircraft could serve as both fighter and a bomber.
