Two US Navy Super Hornets crash in Persian Gulf "]adserv|3.0|289|1061321|0|277|ADTECH;loc=300;key=key1+key2+key3+key4;grp=[group]


Two US Navy Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornets crashed in the Persian Gulf on 7 January. The three crewmembers ejected safety and were rescued by teams from the aircraft carrier USS Truman.

The US Navy says the single-seat F/A-18E and two-seat F/A-18F "were providing en route close air support from Iraq when they crashed". The aircraft were from Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3.

Currently deployed on the Truman, CVW-3 includes strike fighter squadrons VFA-11 and VFA-32 operating the F/A-18F, VFA-105 with the F/A-18E, and VFA-37 with the earlier F/A-18 Hornet.

Mid-air collision? :huh:
