Details

This high quality replica is crafted from resin and comes with a wooden base. Dimension are 17.5(L) X 10"(H) X 11.5"(Wingspan).The F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole fighter jet, designed to dogfight and attack ground targets (F/A for Fighter/Attack). Designed by McDonnell Douglas and Northrop, the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations. It has been the aerial demonstration aircraft for the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, since 1986.Four F-18 Hornet aircraft are being flown by NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif., for research support and pilot proficiency. The aircraft were obtained from the U.S. Navy between 1984 and 1991. Two have a two-seat cockpit while the others are single-seat aircraft. These NASA research support aircraft are commonly called chase planes and fill the role of escort aircraft during research missions. Chase pilots are in constant radio contact with research pilots and serve as an "extra set of eyes" to help maintain total flight safety during specific tests and maneuvers. They monitor certain events for the research pilot and are an important safety feature on all research missions.

This line of aircraft replicas features the largest selection of military, commercial, general aviation and spacecraft from the beginning of aviation to the present. The majority of these high quality replicas are hand crafted from mahogany wood and all come with a wooden display stand.
