Hobby Master HA3505 USMC McDonnell Douglas F/A-18D Hornet Strike Fighter - VMFA(AW)-332 'Moonlighters', Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, South Carolina, February 2007 [Low-Vis Scheme] (1:72 Scale) "Bigger, Higher, Faster, Farther."
- Thinking within the US Air Force during the late 1970s

The F/A-18 Hornet is the true multi-role aircraft. It can vault from a carrier deck, bomb a target and stay to dogfight even the best enemy aircraft without missing a beat. It's the Navy's first modern-era jet intended for double duty against air- and ground-based adversaries. Armed to the hilt with Sparrow and Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, an internal cannon, and laser-guided bombs, this modern warbird was an outstanding performer in Operation Desert Storm. Strapped into a digital cockpit described as a cross between Star Wars and a video game, pilots of the F/A-18 Hornet take on the ultimate aviation job: blasting this single-seat, high-performance jet off the deck of a carrier, dropping bombs, and firing air-to-ground ordnance. Offering unmatched agility, the Hornet is the choice aircraft of the US Navy's elite Blue Angels aerobatic team.
