    CF-188A "Canada Special Marking 2012"
    RCAF demonstration team
    The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic twin engine all-weather
    night fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18s first flew in November 1978 and the first production
    flight on April 12, 1980. The first 380 aircraft were F/A-18As and in September 1987 production
    switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat aircraft while B and D are tandem-
    seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases with the capability of in
    flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.

    In 2012 RCAF CF-188A 781 (US registry 188781) MSN 0556/A464 was selected to receive the
    special paint scheme to represent Canada�s Demo aircraft for that season. The aircraft paint
    theme was �The True North, Strong and Free� and flown by Captain Patrick Paco Gobeil, a
    former Snowbird Demonstration team member. Images on the aircraft depict the Arctic with 13
    snowflakes to represent Canada�s 13 provinces and territories. Also shown are Northern Lights,
    Canada�s Maple Leaf, a polar bear and an Arctic hunter.
