Item#: HA3527
Scale: 1:72

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic twin engine all-weather
night fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18s first flew in November 1978 and the first
production flight on April 12, 1980. The first 380 aircraft were F/A-18As and in September
1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat aircraft while B
and D are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases
with the capability of in flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.


In 1997 the Swiss Air Force acquired 26 Boeing F/A-18C Hornets as well as 8 F/A-18Ds. In
June 1997 17 Staffel “Falcons” was the first squadron to receive the new aircraft followed by
18 Staffel “Panthers” in the Spring of 1998 and 11 Staffel “Tigers” in 1999. Beginning in
2010 an F/A-18C from Staffels 17 (J-5017) and 18 (J-5018) were painted to commemorate
the 100th anniversary of Swiss military aviation. From 2010 until 2012 J-5017 was the
Solo Display aircraft from Staffel 17 flown by Ralph “Deasy” Knittel.
