In December 2004 VF-103 "Jolly Rogers" returned from a deployment and retired their F-14Bs for the newer F/A-18F Super Hornet. In 2005, along with the new aircraft came a new designation for the "Jolly Rogers", VFA-103. On May 22, 2018 VFA-103 was assigned to USS Abraham Lincoln CVW-7. The CAG aircraft, F/A-18F Super Hornet (BuNo 168493) received special markings to celebrate the squadron's 75th Anniversary (1943 - 2018). The inner part of the left fin lists the squadrons that have been "Jolly Rogers" over the years.

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18F Super 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.
