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. Between May 16 and 27th, 2016 the Spanish Air Force ALA 15 located at Zaragoza Air Base hosted the NATO Tiger Meet for that year. There were 97 aircraft taking part in the exercise over the 2 week event making it the largest NTM in the event history. In honor of the NATO Tiger Meet most aircraft are given some form of a paint scheme featuring the markings of a tiger. Spain�s EF-18A 15-01/C15-14 from ALA 15 received a very elaborate scheme on its tail and tanks.
