The f18 Hornet is a beautiful airplane.

When you take kids to an airshow, the jets are one of the best parts.  This particular  f18 is from VA-125 in Lemoore California.  This is my first squadron attachment when I was in the Navy.

When this plane came into the flight line I jumped up and down and yelled at the kids about how this plane was from my squadron. This makes an impression on the kids and gives them information / training about aircraft types at the same time.  My stay at Lemoore also included belonging to VA-192 the World Famous Golden Dragons and a cruise aboard the USS Kitty Hawk aircraft carrier
