The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels just finished another successful season of airshows across America, making it the 33rd year the Boeing F/A-18 has flown in front of thousands of fans.
The Blue Angels are the Navy and Marine Corps’ elite flight demonstration squadron. With pilots drawn from active-duty Navy and Marine flight squadrons, the Blue Angels demonstrate the incredible skills of America’s Naval and Marine pilots. The F/A-18 Hornets they fly are combat-ready aircraft that are constantly updated to meet the latest demands on the battlefield.
One of the most proven, versatile and affordable fighter jets used by the Navy and international allies, the F/A-18 has a reputation of being the Navy’s only strike fighter that lets it dominate both the skies and land, and has surpassed more than 10 million flight hours.
