    F/A-18C Hornet
    BuNo 164201, VFA-83 "Rampagers", 2005
    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.


    VFA-83 was formed in April 1950 as Naval Reserve Fighter Squadron VF-916 "Roaring
    Bulls". On February 4 1953, the squadron was re-designated Fighter Squadron Eighty Three
    (VF-83). July 1 1955 VF-83 was re-designated attack squadron VA-83 and renamed the
    "Rampagers" in 1957. In 1966 VA-83 traded their A-4 Skyhawks for the A-7E Corsair which
    they flew until 1987 when they received the F/A-18C and became VFA-83. When they
    returned from a deployment in 2004 aboard the USS John F. Kennedy they were re-assigned
    to the USS Eisenhower in 2005.
