Blue Angels get Super Hornet

PENSACOLA, Fla. - On Monday morning, the first painted Super Hornet arrived at Naval Air Station Pensacola. It was delivered from Naval Air Station Cecil Field in Jacksonville, Fla., where a lot of Super Hornet transitional maintenance and training takes place. The F/A-18 Super Hornet was flown into Pensacola by Capt. Eric Doyle, director of the Blue Angels Super Hornet Transition Team. The entire 11-jet Super Hornet fleet should arrive at NAS Pensacola before the end of the year. The new jets are on schedule to replace the current F/A-18 Legacy Hornets and begin officially flying for the Blues in April 2021. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 07/28/20)
