First Five Super Hornets For Australia Delivered


The first five Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornets for Australia landed at Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Amberley on March 26. Australia is the Super Hornet's first international customer. The Super Hornets, piloted by RAAF aircrews, departed US Naval Air Station Lemoore, California, on March 18 and made scheduled stops in Hawaii, Pago Pago and New Zealand on the way to Amberley. Australia announced its intent to acquire 24 Super Hornets in March 2007. The remaining 19 aircraft will arrive in Australia throughout 2010 and 2011.
