In 2017, the Royal Canadian Air Force commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada, honouring the history of the Canadian Armed Forces, including the RCAF, as a part of Canada's proud history. The specially-painted CF-18 Hornet featured the official logo for "Canada 150" placed throughout the design. The logo was composed of a series of diamonds, or "celebratory gems", arranged in the shape of the iconic maple leaf with four diamonds at the base representing the four original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Additional diamonds extended out from the base to create nine more points. Together, they symbolized Canada's 13 provinces and territories. On the left wing, the timespan of Confederation was shown with the year of Confederation, 1867, and the 150th anniversary year - 2017. The right wing carried the official name of the celebration - "Canada 150". All aspects of the design came together to create a truly unique and fitting tribute to this important year in Canada's history.

McDonnell Douglas CF-18 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.
