Photos of the F/A-18 Hornet, the number two fighter on my list. Besides a nice and big target for photographers, the Hornet provides a lot of muscle for support of the ground forces. It’s the first aircraft to be designated a Fighter and Attack classification, which is why it’s the F/A-18 and not the F-18. Multi-role capability, high survivability, and maneuverability nearly off of the charts, you have to love the F/A-18 Hornet.

Below is a series of shots of an F/A-18 Hornet from the Scorpion Squadron taking off during Red Flag 10-4 at Nellis Air Force Base. The jet was begging to be captured by a photographer, great tail art !
