The F/A-18C Hornet is a multirole combat jet developed by McDonnell Douglas and Northrop during the 1970s. With a top speed of Mach 1.8 it is superb multirole warplane with the primary missions of fleet air defense, fighter escort, intercept, combat air patrol, suppression of enemy air defense, air interdiction and close air support. Strike Fighter Squadron 83 (VFA-83), also known as the "Rampagers", is a United States Navy F/A-18 Hornet fighter squadron stationed at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, VA.

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.
