The Super Hornet has become a pinnacle of achievement in the field of combat aircraft for many nations. It was formerly referred to as the F/A-18E (F/A stands for Fighter/Attack). This airplane is an all-weather carrier, capable of supersonic speeds, and is considered a multirole fighter jet. The plane itself was specifically engineered so that it would be effective in a dogfight and deadly accurate when it came to attacking targets on the ground. Derived from the YF-17, the F/A-18E has been used by both the United States Navy and the Marine Corps. Since the year 1986, the U.S Navy has used this aircraft in exhibitions conducted by their demonstration squad, A.K.A. the Blue Angels.
