Default Desktop Wallpaper - "F/A-18 Hornet" fighter reaches the sound barrier during a supersonic flyby

Thursday, July 01, 2004

Wallpaper of the month - July 2004

Desktop Wallpaper - "F/A-18 Hornet" fighter.

Photo: An F/A-18 Hornet, reaches the sound barrier during a
supersonic flyby over USS Enterprise (CVN 65).

Description: All-weather fighter and attack aircraft. The single-seat
F/A-18 Hornet is the nation's first strike-fighter. It was designed
for traditional strike applications such as interdiction and close air
support without compromising its fighter capabilities. With its
excellent fighter and self-defense capabilities, the F/A-18 at the
same time increases strike mission survivability and supplements the
F-14 Tomcat in fleet air defense. F/A-18 Hornets are currently
operating in 37 tactical squadrons from air stations world-wide, and
from 10 aircraft carriers. The U.S. Navy's Blue Angels Flight
Demonstration Squadron proudly flies them. The Hornet comprises the
aviation strike force for seven foreign customers including Canada,
Australia, Finland, Kuwait, Malaysia, Spain and Switzerland.

Features: The F/A-18 Hornet, an all-weather aircraft, is used as an
attack aircraft as well as a fighter. In its fighter mode, the F/A-18
is used primarily as a fighter escort and for fleet air defense; in
its attack mode, it is used for force projection, interdiction and
close and deep air support.

Background: The F/A-18 demonstrated its capabilities and versatility
during Operation Desert Storm, shooting down enemy fighters and
subsequently bombing enemy targets with the same aircraft on the same
mission, and breaking all records for tactical aircraft in
availability, reliability, and maintainability.

Complete installation instructions are provided.
