With all due respect to the both of you, that is not what I said or suggested in my last post concerning the HORNETS in Post 509!!

From that Post my input...
"But I just checked my papers and came across this significant article concerning the F/A-18 HORNET specifically the A-D series versions."

"The F/A-18 E/F and F/A-18G are still operational and will be for at least 10 or more years."

From DID...
"The US Navy has retired its fleet of Boeing F/A-18A-D Hornet combat aircraft from active service."

For perspective and as I'm tracking this closely, I give you the following...
https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-n...fighter-trials

You will note that Boeing is bringing to the competition the F/A-18E/F.

The winner will replace the F-5 and F/A-18C/D (Which was the latest type the USN was flying of the "Classic (Types A-D.)" HORNET until the 2 Oct Retirement.)

Regards,
Pat

My mistake.
Thought they'd accelerated the change to the F-35 for some reason and gotten rid of the F/A-18s altogether. Which frankly doesn't make a lot of sense because as a "fighter" the F-35 sorta sucks.

As we all keep saying the F-35 is not an air superiority fighter......

Then again neither is the British Sea Harrier ... unless you're Argentinean.

If I may recommend for further reading "A Maverick At War SEAHARRIER OVER THE FALKLANDS" by Commander "Sharkey" Ward DSC, AFC, RN.

If you know anything about the HARRIER he's considered the "father" (Actually referred to as "Mr. Sea Harrier".) of them and became one of their biggest supporters even up to and after Britain sold all those wonderfully expensively upgraded GR.8/9 HARRIERS (And others.) the USMC would get for a "fire sell" and a loss financially to the British.

Anyway, they were severely out numbered and faced some excellent aircraft of the time Mirage III/V DAGGERS (Being his second of three kills.), Super ETENDARDS and those A4 SKYHAWKS that played havoc with the "fleet".

An excellent book on the air war also covering the land war for perspective. RN intrigue (Inter service rivalries.) and like all good wars, misallocation of resources so some can say (Bomber Command.), in were in it as well. Yes they decided to fly a VULCAN 7000 miles RT (Ascension Island.) requiring fuel support from 10 tankers @ 137,000 gallons for that one bomber. The fuel used could've supported 260 Sea Harrier missions over Port Stanley. In three missions one bomb clipped the runway and on the second mission someone forgot to fuse the bombs on all 21 of them dropped. Very embarrassing!?!

Anyway my Marine buddy, good point!!

Well CINCLANTHOME will make me pay for this when she gets me up in a few hours before we hit the road. Not a coffee drinker but, I might need a "Cup of Joe" before we leave!?!

Regards,
Pat
