The McDonnell Douglas Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet is a twin-engine multi-role carrier-based
aircraft. The “E” variant is single-seater while the “F” variant is a tandem-seat configuration. The
“E” is a much larger, more advanced and more capable variant of the F/A-18C. The Super variant
can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the
carrier while still carrying unspent munitions, a big savings in dollars. The first F/A-18E flight was
in 1995 and began delivery to the USN in 1999.


In 2001 onboard the USS Enterprise and equipped with the F-14 VF-41 “Black Aces” sailed in
support of Operation Southern Watch and Operation Enduring Freedom. In late 2001 when VF-41
returned to NAS Lemoore they transitioned to the F/A-18F Super Hornet and were redesignated
VFA-41. In 2011 VFA-41 deployed on the USS John C. Stennis to support Operation Enduring
Freedom and the last of Operation New Dawn. After a short stay back at Lemoore VFA-41 and
USS John C. Stennis sailed in September 2012 to support Operation Enduring Freedom.
