General Background

In May 2007, the Australian Government signed a contract to acquire 24 F/A-18F Super Hornets for the Royal Australian Air Force, as an interim replacement for the aging F-111. The order resulted from concern that the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) would not be operational by the time the F-111s were retired. The RAAF's first five Super Hornets arrived at their home base, RAAF Base Amberley in Queensland, on March 26th 2010, with a second batch of six arriving on July 6th and a third batch of four aircraft arriving on December 7th. The remaining aircraft (Serial numbers A44-216 - A44-224) are planned for delivery in 2011.

The Aircraft

Designed as a replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk and the A-7 Corsair II and as a complement to the F-14 Tomcat, the F/A-18 first flew on November 18, 1978. Perhaps best known as the aircraft of the US Navy's Blue Angels, this carrier-capable, supersonic, all-weather fighter has many roles, including fighter escort, fleet air defense and close air support. The F/A-18 is a versatile aircraft: it can operate from carriers or land bases and a single switch converts it from fighter to strike mode. During Operation Desert Storm, the F/A-18 proved that, on a single mission, one aircraft could serve as both fighter and a bomber.
