Book Description

1 Nov 2011 Story
The F/A-18 evolved from Northrop’s YF-17 in the late 1970s. Production aircraft reached the Navy in May 1980 and the Marine Corps two years later. More than 800 examples would eventually be built for US service, with a further 500 aircraft sold to seven export customers. Earning its battle spurs in April 1986 flying strike missions against Libya, the Hornet would subsequently participate in Operation Desert Storm and the various ‘policing’ operations in Iraq and the Balkans that followed. The ‘legacy’ Hornet is still very much in frontline use with the US Navy and Marine Corps today. Tony Holmes, author of the F-14 Tomcat Story, has once again collected the most spectacular images to complement the history of this star of carrier-based naval aviation.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice book on the F/A-18A/B/C/D Hornet 19 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
This book presents the history of the legacy F/A-18 Hornet (versions A, B, C and D), including its development from the YF-17, Northrops contender on the LWF and ACF competitions. It covers in detail its early deployment to the USN and USMC squadrons, as well as its foreign users. Due to the book's format most of the photographs are smaller than you would find on other books but nonetheless this is an interesting book to have in your library about this fighter aircraft that became the dorsal spine of the US Naval Aviation until the introduction of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
