Have you ever seen the US Navy’s Blue Angels? They won’t be the same again, after today. They are making a change!
From the Navy Times:
Blue Angels to make final flight in the legacy F/A/-18 Hornet as they transition to Super Hornets
The Navy’s Blue Angels will conduct their final flight in the legacy F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet Wednesday [today, 4 Nov!]
The flight, which will take off from and land at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, marks the end of the F/A-18 A/B/C/D platform’s 34 years as the Blue Angels’ aircraft as the team transitions to F/A-18 E/F Super Hornets.
The move to the Super Hornet will mark the first time the elite Navy and Marine Corps demonstration team has changed aircraft since it moved from the A-4F Skyhawk II to the Hornet back in 1986.
