F-18 Hornet (multiple)

 

F-18 Hornets examples including the original Hornets and the souped up EA-18G Growlers. I photographed some during airshow at McChord AFB in 2008, 2010 and 2016. There was even a NASA Hornet at the 2010 show. Mitchell and I also got to see a Hornet on the deck of the USS Yorktown during a 447th BG reunion in Charleston. The Museum of Flight also acquired a Blue Angels veteran to display in the new Pavilion, and I got to photograph a second Blue Angels veteran at the Pima Air&Space Museum.
