Product Details
Forces of Valor 1:72 U.S. F/A-18F Super Hornet Model Airplane
The Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is a twin-engine carrier-based multirole fighter aircraft variants based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The F/A-18E single-seat and F/A-18F tandem-seat variants are larger and more advanced derivatives of the F/A-18C and D Hornets. The Super Hornet has an internal 20 mm gun and can carry air-to-air missiles and air-to-surface weapons. Additional fuel can be carried with up to five external fuel tanks and the aircraft can be configured as an airborne tanker by adding an external air refueling system. Designed and initially produced by McDonnell Douglas, the Super Hornet first flew in 1995. Full-rate production began in September 1997, after the merger of McDonnell Douglas and Boeing the previous month. The Super Hornet entered service with the United States Navy in 1999, replacing the Grumman F-14 Tomcat since 2006, and serves alongside the original Hornet. Strike Fighter Squadron 41 (VFA-41) also known as the - Black Aces - , is a United States Navy strike fighter squadron based at Naval Air Station Lemoore, California (USA). The - Black Aces - is an operational fleet squadron that flies the F/A-18F Super Hornet. The Black Aces is attached to Carrier Air Wing 9 (CVW-9), and is currently deployed aboard the USS John C. Stenis (CVN-74). Their radio call sign is - Fast Eagle - and their tail code is NG. In May 2005 VFA-41 again deployed to the Persian Gulf in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. During this deployment the squadron was featured in the PBS documentary-Carrier. The Forces of Valor replica is of an F/A-18F Super Hornet as flown by the Black Aces. For ages 14 years of age and up.
