Great video's.
I do love the D version of the F/A-18, the most beautiful looking plane of them all (IMO).

This book isn't strictly about hornets but talks a lot about F/A-18C's and F-14s due to the time period (mid to late 90s). A great book for anyone who wants an in depth look at what training is like to become a naval aviator.



It's helped me stay modivated through college

Lovely vid, not C but still, no music or annoying commentary, just Hornet awesomeness.

Not my video, but I was standing just a few feet from this guy when he shot it. THE BEST HORNET DEMO I'VE EVER SEEN!

That is some true Hornet mastery right there! Also one of the better demos I've seen.

Not the worst solo either:

While not the best view on them, the high-alpha barrel rolls and the half-loop straight from the high-alpha pass are fairly impressive for this somewhat underrated airplane.

And the same from the cockpit:

If anyone missed Great planes: F/A-18 its a great documentary. I never realized the F-5 Tiger = F-17 cobra = F/A-18 aspect before

To this day, still my favorite F/A-18 documentary and probably the best ever made.

Just picked this up, same author as Hornets Over Kuwait, not specifically about F/A-18s but covers USMC aviation in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
