The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic twin engine all-weather 
night fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18s first flew in November 1978 and the first production 
flight on April 12, 1980. The first 380 aircraft were F/A-18As and in September 1987 production 
switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat aircraft while B and D are tandem-
seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases with the capability of in 
flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.


There have been three squadrons designated VFA-125 “Rough Raiders” with third being 
established in November 1980. They were stationed at NAS Lemoore, California and in April 
1981 they were the first USN squadron to be equipped with the F/A-18 Hornet. On October 1, 
2010 VFA-125 was disestablished with all assets going to VFA-122 “Flying Eagles”. VFA-125 will 
be reestablished in the future as an F-35 training squadron.
