    F/A-18A "Worimi Hornet"
    A21-23, RAAF, 2016
    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 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.


    F/A-18A A21-23 c/n 483/AF023 was delivered to the RAAF on February 8, 1988. In 2002 the
    aircraft was with the 75 Sqn and was selected to wear the special paint scheme for the unit's
    60th anniversary. In 2006 the aircraft went to the 3 Sqn but soon returned to 75 Sqn. On
    February 24, 2015 F/A-18A A21-23 was unveiled wearing a special paint scheme called
    "Worimi Hornet" in honor of Leonard Waters and the aboriginal people. Len was the first
    RAAF aboriginal fighter pilot during WWII where he flew 95 missions.
