US Navy F-18E
The F-18E is a twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft. Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and Northrop, the F-18E was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The F-18E is also used by the air forces of several other nations, and since 1986, by the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.
