Super Hornet by jamezevanz Super Hornet by jamezevanz
Decided I need to put another plane pic up. F/A-18E a second before hitting the deck.

Hmmm....looks like this was taken near the LSO pit or close to it on the catwalk...this is the design the Navy REALLY wanted for the Hornet- a real workhorse of an aircraft that can perform more than just strike and air combat duties...it also can perform ECM in the configuration known as "The Growler"

It's configured as a tanker. The center "tank" is actually a buddy store, the same one the KA-6 and S-3 carried. It trails a drogue and other Hornets can take gas from it.

Where do I sign up to stand there? (I mean without a 4 year commitment.)

Really nice shot. Are you in the navy? I can never seem to find decent photos of this plane it's SOOO my latest favourite, after the SU27 after the F22 raptor.
